Did you know that in Philippine Mythology, the creation of the earth and mankind is attributed to the brotherly fight between Adlao (Sun) and Bulan (Moon)? Legend has it that Adlao and Bulan engaged in an epic battle, each seeking dominance over the newly formed world. Their fierce clash resulted in the birth of the land, seas, and all living creatures that now inhabit the Earth.

Inspired by this captivating myth, the Sun & Moon Ring, lovingly known as the Bulan Ring, encapsulates the eternal struggle and harmonious dance between these celestial siblings. As you wear this extraordinary piece of jewelry, you embody the essence of this ancient tale, connecting to the profound creation story that has been passed down through generations.

The Sun & Moon Ring is a testament to the artistry and skill of Tboli artisans who practice the ancient craft of Temwel 
(brass-casting), an honored tradition passed down for generations. 

To craft each piece, the artisans use upcycled brass and other metal scraps from local junk shops. These are then transformed into new designs that honor Tboli tradition, folklore, and nature. Temwel involves a complex process of wax rolling, clay molding, and molten metal casting that usually takes days to complete.

Each of our pieces are handmade in small batches to showcase the highest quality Tboli craftsmanship available. Naturally, this means your jewelry will have small imperfections and a unique character to it.
