Inspiration: The Papua

Magic Necklace...

One the inspirations for our new collection rock & bone 

was the Papua New Guinea.  

We love a gathering with bold body adornment statements. High Drama.  

The video below is from french photographer Eric Lafforgue.  

The photos were taken at the biggest tribal meeting in the world: in Mount Hagen , Papua New Guinea. At this cultural fete the Papua paint themselves and dress up with feathers, pearls, bone, shells and animal skins to represent birds, trees or mountain spirits...
