ACROSS THE IS­LANDS

Red Magazine - - On The Radar -

In her lat­est col­lec­tion “Archipela­gus,” jew­eler Wynn Wynn Ong crafts an ode to the Philip­pine archipelago and one of the Filipino tribes’ rec­og­niz­able fig­ures: the bu­lol, the Ifu­gao rice god revered for its fer­til­ity. Gold, black stone, and pearl adorn the pieces—a stylis­tic throw­back to the Philip­pines’ past nick­name “Pearl of the Ori­ent” and its pre­col­o­nized past.
