THE ALTA TRIBE
The Alta people live in the northern Luzon region of the Philippines. They live high on the slopes of the volcanoes and use the rich soil to grow their crops. The tribe is constantly in danger, having had to rebuild their community several times.
The design of their jewellery is inspired by the precise geometry of the volcanic landscape they inhabit. It also serves as a reminder to respect the volcanoes and not take their existence there for granted.
