Ten years ago, after years of living and traveling in Asia, our designer, Jennifer Belcourt, settled in Bali. Inspired by her bohemian life and travels, she began designing a collection of necklaces. Jennifer worked with the traditional Balinese tassel necklace, mixing the different techniques and materials from each island with her keen sense of style.
The island of Madura’s specialty, is necklaces with tiny knotting between each bead. Using this technique Jennifer designed necklaces made of crystals, Mala beads, fresh water pearls from the island of Lombok and lava stone beads from the volcanoes of Mt Batur in Bali and Mt Semeru in Java.
Many necklaces in the Zacasha collection have charms of Buddha or elephants who carry a message of peace and good luck to those who wear them. (FYI -The elephant trunk must always be “up” to bring good luck!)
