Luh works with her brother Wayan. They partnered up to open Bolenat. She is in charge of the shop and is learning to make more jewelry everyday, while her brother- Wayan makes and designs each piece by hand. I couldn't help but fall in love with all the beautiful colors and tassels! If I hadn't trekked down Monkey Forest Road- an hours walk from Ubud city center- I would have never found Luh and her amazing work. These were the most beautiful tassel beaded necklaces I had seen in Ubud, Bali. And trust me...I saw A LOT! Before working with Mariposa Skies, their shop was subject to only the tourists who would visit. Now they are able to work with people all around the world. We have learned a lot together, Luh and I, and I am extremely grateful for her willingness to try sending things to me here in the U.S.
Your purchase has helped not only her and her brother's business but their livelihoods. This trickles down into their family as well as the whole community. Which means your purchase has made a huge impact! Thank you!
