'When I was growing up in Australia in the 90s, it felt as if people like me were just seen as ‘Asian’ by the general populace. In my early 20s, I began visiting more of South East Asia and China and started to get a feel for the complexities and layers of the ethnicities and sub-ethnicities in the regions where my parents were from' - Som
The pendant measures 38mm x 46mm and is strung on waxed cord with a silver toggle allowing you to adjust the length of the neckpiece.
