Rattan Bracelets

The bracelets’ base structure is made from rattan or “yantok” in Filipino.  Other colorful trinkets embedded in the design include found objects such as scavenged sharks’ teeth, shells, wood, bamboo, pebbles,etc. Some are custom-made terracota and wooden beads. Others still were beads donated by Ms. PJ Valenciano, the artisan of Palamuti Storytelling Jewels. These bracelets were created by Elorde Mesac, a visual artist, musician, among others.
