Balinese Wedding

Just recently I returned to Bali to be a part of one of my best Balinese friends eldest sons wedding. What a privilege it was to be at such a beautiful event, I will treasure it forever.

I’d like to share some of the photos from the day with you all.

Namaste

Amanda :)

A stroll through Ubud

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been visiting Bali for the past 35 years. Most of my time is spent in the beautiful village of Ubud and surrounding areas.

It never ceases to amaze me that every time I come here I find something new and exciting to explore. Like most towns and cities all over the world, Ubud is ever evolving.

Some of these things I can see as a benefit to the place, but others I feel have taken away some of the spirit of Ubud, never the less it’s still an amazing place.

Here are some photos I took in an afternoon while strolling through Ubud. I hope you enjoy.

Namaste

Amanda :)

Posters of the past

Every collection that RBF launches has a meaning & thought process that goes behind the pieces we create. We try to capture this thought through our imagery & posters that go along side each launch. Here is a collection of some of the beautiful images so far. We hope you love them too!

Our Process

The creative process of making redbalifrog jewellery first begins with an idea. We then put pen to paper and sketch the designs.

 Yande then turns these sketches into little pieces of art carved from wax.

Once we’re Happy with the design, the mold is used for the wax casting. Pieces are made from a wax release process.

The raw silver is then burnished to enhance the designs and sometimes welded when two pieces are used in the casting. Hand polishing is the final process.
