Hand-carved of sawo wood, marvelous stylized flame designs are realized in the pendant of this necklace from Bali, flanked by dark onyx beads. Representing artisans with physical disabilities, Bhakti Senang Hati presents the adjustable necklace, adorning the wearer on an adjustable length of cotton cord. Gusti Lanang creates the necklace, naming it Lidah Api, meaning "the tip of the flame" in Indonesian.
"I was born in Tabanan Bali, the fifth of six siblings. I studied only until the second year of junior high school because my parents couldn't pay the school fee. When I was 14, my father passed away. That same year, I had a bad motorbike accident and had to have one of my legs amputated. I joined the foundation in 2007 and here I met the woman who became my wife. Now we have a son. My wife and I work together to provide for our little family and prepare for the future. I craft our products by hand, and my wife helps me. I hope you like our designs."
I received the carved wooden pendant - it is just as described in the website. Thank you Bahakti Senang Hati! I am giving this piece to my grandson. I know he will like it when I tell him about you and where you live....
