Abstract

Indonesia is one of the largest agrarian countries. A lot of rice fields can be found here and it produces more yields every year include the abundant agricultural wastes. One of the waste is Rice Husk, it is a convex-shaped and golden-yellowish colored when the paddy is ready to be harvested. Some people only use this waste as a farming media although there are lots of ways to make better use of this waste; chemically or by using it to be material of ready-to-wear products like jewelry. Advanced rice husk exploration is conducted in this research as the early treatment of the materials before the rice husk is designed into some valuable accessories. It comes from nothing into something valuable. The method used in this exploration and designing is mainly using experiment approachment method and the result of this exploration will be mainly applied to jewelry products in the form of mixed resin and rice husk.
