These handmade Indonesian sterling silver charms frame petite cabochons representing each month's birthstone. The intricate patterns in the silver are drawn from the ancient Indonesian weaving technique of ikat, where threads are dyed before weaving to achieve a perfect pattern on the loom. Based on a Malay word meaning "to bind," ikat was sought after by 19th century Silk Route traders and is still practiced on the islands of Bali and Kalimantan.
