I got the Buko Wire Bracelet as a gift when I first visited the Philippines. I loved it and was wearing it almost every single day for the last three years. Three weeks ago, I unfortunately lost it. I learned that you are shipping the jewelry also to Germany now and so I bought a new one. It does look a bit different what proves that the jewelry is really handmade and every piece is unique. The payment procedure was super easy via PayPal and I received the jewelry within about two weeks. I love it so much and restarted wearing it every day. Thank you very much.

beautiful and meaningful

been looking for ways to feel closer to motherland, my community, and nature. knowing that this beautiful bracelet was made by artisans with care and attention, from my homeland, makes me feel all those. it is malleable and i wear it as an upper armlet. thank you, sesotunawa :)


Love the design! But, what I really love about my Bluko Wire Bracelet is the fact I have a piece of TBoli culture with me wherever I go. As a Filipino, I am super proud to wear my Bluko bracelet and tell its story to others.
