Tembesu wood is originated from Palembang, the capital city of South Sumatra province, and is popular as one of the main materials in timber industry. The waste of tembesu timber industry is in blocks of wood pieces, which are too small to be a construction element or any structural product, but are too big and valuable to let burn as garbage. Dian Suri saw the potential of this raw material and turned it into a series of jewelry and body accessories that carry the theme of Palembang ethnicity for her graduation project at Industrial Design ITB.
