Lotus Pod BangleGarden of desire
Garden of Desire designer Ly Pisith creates exquisite contemporary pieces that are often linked to his Cambodian roots, vibrant with meaning. After fleeing as a child to France, where he eventually worked for numerous haute couture international brands, Pisith returned to Cambodia in 2007 and founded Garden of Desire with jeweler Agnes Lim.
Natural motifs from Khmer art take shape in silver and gems in Garden of Desire's Nature collection, with matte finishes that evoke the luster of moonlight. Handcrafted in sterling silver, the Lotus Pod Silver Bangle is a thin, textured silver twist shaped to wrap around the wrist comfortably. Its ends unfold to reveal dual forms of the lotus pod, seen also in the center of this bowl in the Asian Art Museum collection, created nearly 1,000 years ago in the Kingdom of Angkor, Cambodia.
All Garden of Desire pieces are handcrafted by local artisans and jewelers and each style is made in limited quantities from 955 fine silver, 925 sterling silver, and semi-precious stones.
