The Lun Bawang Borneo Beads Deluxe Kit was created to introduce Sarawak's rich culture and tradition. The Lun Bawangs are an indigenous tribe living in the heart of Borneo. In the olden days, Lun Bawang beads were used as currency for barter trade and were also regarded as a symbol of status. Now, old antique Lun Bawang beads which have been fashioned into jewellery such as headdresses ('pata'), necklaces ('bane') and bracelets ('gileng') are passed down the generations as treasured heirlooms.
This special deluxe DIY kit consists of clay and ceramic Lun Bawang beads, and is enough to make at least two necklaces and a wrap bracelet. This DIY kit gives you the ultimate freedom to be your own jewellery designer!

Various types of Sarawakian Lun Bawang beads such as big patterned ceramic beads, 'Palang Alau' (60 beads), 'Labang' (60 beads), 'Bau Tulang' (100 beads)
Silver tibetan spike pendants
