T'dak Droplet Brass EarringsRegular price $40.00 CAD
Designed by Tboli brass-casters, our T’dak Droplet Earrings were inspired by their home, the surrounding bodies of water and its abundant sourceーthe rain. It's a small, everyday reminder to nurture our connection to the natural world that supports us.
Our T'dak brass earrings were designed and handmade by Indigenous Tboli artisans of Lake Sebu, South Cotabato in the Philippines. The Tboli are celebrated as visionary brass-casters, woodworkers, and “Dreamweavers”. The art of Temwel (brass-casting) is an honoured 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 earrings 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.
