Sterling silver pendant necklace, 'Balinese Walnut' (Indonesia)

By Zayd Makarim, this elegant pendant depicts a stylized walnut crowned by an intricate spiral motif known as Buddha curls. "This design was inspired by the Muslim holiday, Hari Raya Eid, when we lived in Bogor. We'd enjoy walnuts, an expensive treat. Although nowadays it's becoming a common food, it still conveys the feel of Hari Raya Eid," the artisan confides. .925 Sterling silver
