18kt Gold PSTM Myanmar Owl Pendant

$3,180.00

Stone: Gold

This owl is made in Myanmar with Turquoise Mountain. On my first trip to Myanmar I noticed pairs of owls everywhere, wooden ones hanging from the mirrors in taxis, paper mache ones in the corners of rooms. I asked what they were and was told they brought good luck. The female is often depicted with an owlet or two at her feet. They represent luck, happiness and wisdom.

 

Drawing on ancient Burmese symbols, Buddhist iconography, and the natural world of this beautiful south East Asian country for inspiration, Pippa has been working with Turquoise Mountain Myanmar for 4 years. Each piece is hand made in Myanmar by artisans trained in traditional goldsmithing techniques. Providing meaningful livelihood skills and much needed employment in one of Asia’s poorest countries.

Tin Win

Like many of the most renowned goldsmiths in Myanmar, Tin Win comes from Ramree Island, Rakhine State. He grew up immersed in the goldsmith life, with a thin line between the workshop and the playground. It was the wish of his parents that he became a goldsmith, and he moved to Yangon in 1996 to study under the master U Kyaw Than.
