The LEGONG Story

The Legong dance is one of Bali’s most visually intriguing performances. Everything from the choreography to the costumes is tuned to the finest detail. It is known for its physically demanding postures, fast-paced footwork, intricate finger movements, expressive gestures, and facial expressions. It requires a significant level of flexibility among its young female performers, which are usually dressed in intricate costumes and dramatic makeup. As with Kecak, Legong is also both a dance and a drama performance, recounting many different traditional tales.

Legend says that it is born from the fever dream of a prince, who dreamed of two of the most beautiful maidens, dressed in ball gown, dancing to traditional gamelan music. As soon as he recovered, he arranged for such dances to be performed in reality.

With the "Legong" bracelet we focused on turquoise and moonstone, some of the most common and most royal colors found in Legong. It is a very complicated and refined bracelet to make, but the result is a beautiful intense turquoise bracelet, fit for the finest feminine beauties.
