The Story

Celestial objects had special roles in our precolonial culture, from representing gods and goddess, to guiding their livelihoods, be it seafaring or farming.

Tala means “bright star” in Tagalog, and she is also the goddess of the evening star. Being an archipelago, many of our ancestors were seafarers and used the stars to guide their journeys by night.

The Tala Necklace features a starburst symbol in white mother-of-pearl set against the swirling blue colors of paua abalone, symbolizing the goddess’ guiding light, our own light, as we navigate through the ocean of life.


Materials: Paua abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay, 24 kt gold-plated brass.

Measurements: Necklace chain length measures 41 cm with 5 cm extender chain. The pendant is 2.5 cm in diameter.


Each of our pieces is completely handcrafted with natural seashells, so any variation in size, color, or pattern is completely natural, making each piece unique.

Due to the intricacies involved in the crafting of our jewelry, each design is only available in a limited number of pieces.
