Personalised jewellery and gifts on a grain of rice
We stumbled with this small stall at Mindil Beach Market one day. At the front of the stall said "names and art on a grain of rice", so we had a look closer to the display. We could see good luck pendants, charm bracelets, earrings and key rings.

Art Rice, writing on a grain of rice, art, personalized jewellery, hand made, Darwin, Northern Territory


Helen Treacy she said the art of writing on a grain of rice was discovered many years ago by artisans in ancient Anatolia and India. Helen used common long grain white rice that already been smoothed with a special sharp utility knife. The smooth surface helped with the writing process. My daughter wanted a necklace with her name in it, so Helen asked her to choose a pendant and chain.



Helen used a special paintbrush with a sharp or a chiselled tip. Once the rice writing was complete, she preserved the grain of rice in a small vial of liquid/oil. It took about 30 minutes to be ready. The result was just simply stunning. The writing was very neat and the pendant well made. Helen had a very happy customer that day
