Accessorize with these timeless bangles handcrafted by the T'boli indigenous tribe. Brass casting, or kem tau temwel as they call it, is a tradition passed from one generation to the next, usually from parent to child. It involves an elaborate mix of traditional methods, natural and found materials, and the mastery of the temwel (brass caster) resulting in truly unique handmade pieces.
