The Lotus Heart Collection is inspired to keep alive an ancient Balinese technique.
Nagicia has chosen the traditional Balinese “plong” technique to create the Lotus Heart Collection, a technique so named for the sound of a delicate hammer stamping out each leaf individually – “plong plong plong”. First, the motif is carved into the end of a silver pin, and after the hammering onto a thin sheet of silver, it is hand applied individually to the base of the jewelry piece. The effect created is one of careful craftsmanship, precise yet individual detail.
