Milena Zu is famous for her mesh jewellery. She grew up in Italy in an artistic family and during her travels came through Ubud where she came across the local artisans who mastered an ancient technique of crocheting with metal wires. Their skills had been passed down through generations and Milena now works with the artisans who crochet her modern designs to her exact mathematical instructions.
