Do you love jewellery? Are you a proud Ni-Vanuatu and want to celebrate our culture in a personalised way? Or perhaps you are just a visitor who would like to bring back a souvenir that is unique to Vanuatu? Either way, why not get yourself a gorgeous pair of custom made Tam Tam earrings?

Betty Billandon has made these lovely pair of earrings especially for Sista and is able to make more upon request. Visit her at the handicrafts market near L’ecole Colardeau to put in an order.

The earrings are only 2000vt and have been carved by a man from Ambrym, the island where Tam Tams originate from. For those who are looking for something at the lower price range, the handicrafts market also features a range of earrings made from local materials including shells and seeds for under 500vt.
