These distinctive wearable art pieces are created through the unique collaboration of the local and European designers and artists, who fashion beautiful jewelry out of nature’s bounty. Located in the magical paradise of the 7,107 tropical islands of the Philippine Archipelago, these artists create jewelry inspired by the natural materials found there.
