The Necklace reflects Kbach elements, a traditional decorative element in Cambodian architecture, carved in relief on the walls and columns of Angkor’s temples as well as on traditional Khmer silverware. The simple beauty of the kbach chan, a decorative flower motif, in particular, takes shape in various simple forms, delicate but strong.
The solid Kbach chan pieces are first carved into wax and then cast via the lost-wax casting method. Its individually handmade links are subsequently assembled. The necklace is handcrafted in fine silver over 7 days by a single artisan.
Wear it singly and long, gracefully looped or layered with other necklaces as you wish, all to beautiful effect.
