The inspiration behind Ewa Tribal Jewelry grew from years of travelling the remote Sepik River in Papua New Guinea, where Francesca & Bianca began to incorporate the villager’s adornments into their own personal style. From wild boar tusks to ancient shell money, the innate rawness & uniqueness of each reclaimed item became the source of inspiration to create a collection of distinctive yet classic pieces to be worn by every woman.
Bianca, fashion photographer, & Francesca, interior designer, now reside in Bali managing their gallery space, Ewa Oceanic Art Gallery, yet travel home to Papua New Guinea regularly. Over time the designers saw the opportunity to blend the artisan craftsmanship of the Balinese with the organic forms of the Papua New Guinea people to create a collection of stylish yet powerful finished pieces, Ewa Tribal Jewelry.
You can view both Gold & Silver collection here online, or visit the gallery space at Ewa Gallery on Jalan Dewi Sita, in Ubud, Bali.
