"I understand that I cannot change the world, but I can change somebody's world into a better one."
"My name is Lenny. My formal education ended at the first year of secondary school because my foster father and mother didn't think schooling was necessary for a woman. It was not about money but an opinion that a woman doesn't need higher education as long as she is able to read and write. Being unable to continue formal studies never quenched my thirst for knowledge. I love to study from books and learn from other people. Here I am now – I can prove to the world that schooling or formal study has nothing to do with getting a better job and life, as long as we are open to something new and willing to learn and work hard.
"My interest in jewelry began in 1998. At the time I worked for a foreign designer, residing in Bali. My work was receiving, counting, weighing gemstones and making price lists. After some time, I was entrusted with some other tasks. I have had the opportunity to learn a lot of things and gain a lot of experience in creating my own designs.
"I am in love with gemstones and blessed with an artistic sense of color. I have also enjoyed meeting and working with a lot of special stone cutters, mostly from China, and talented jewelers in Bali who have given me a lot of inspiration. I love the challenge of making fashionable and artistic jewelry, elegant and suitable not only for day-to-day wear, but also for a very special occasion.
"One day, when my finances and life are stable, I will dedicate myself to finding sponsors and donors for people living in poverty, especially for those who are willing to continue school, have great potential, and talent, but are unable to reach their dream. I understand that I cannot change the world, but I can change somebody's world into a better one."
I ordered the lapis hearts bracelet. It is well made, very tiny and delicate. I love it for everyday wear.
Thank you, Lenny, for the beautiful work you've done creating such breathtaking pieces of jewelry like ""Seeds of Fire"" and ""Seduction"" earrings. It's more than pleasure to be connected with people around the world through the piece of art or craft. Wish you all the best. The service from Novica is exceptional. It's amazing that shipping from Indonesia to East coast took just 5 days. Thank you for the great job you.
I'm crazy about your designs. I'll be ""Forever in Love"" with this ring set. I love the idea of creating my own design with these rings. I can wear one,two,three,four,or all five rings in any order I like and they look like a new and different setting. I have to admit that I like all five at a time but sometimes I like a solitary setting. Thank you, Lenny, for your beautiful creativity.
Thank you for a wonderful pair of earrings ""Dreamer."" The work is very delicate and beautiful. Will definitely buy more items from Lenny, she is a phenomenal artist! P.S. I wish there was a necklace to match these earrings. May be we could ask Lenny to design a ""Dreamer"" necklace?
The ""illusions"" earrings and necklace are fabulous. Lenny's designs and creativity are outstanding. I am so glad that Novica has made it possible to see and purchase hand created works of art that we would never have a chance to own and enjoy without them. Thank you Lenny for sharing your creations with us.
Dear Lenny, Your lovely earrings ""cheerful"" arrived today. They are as delicate and lovely as their photo. I love them and will keep an eye on your creations. Thank you,
The 'Truth' and 'Sweet Candies' earrings I have are absolutely adorable and I look forward to future great design from Lenny. Pieces of exceptional design and meticulous attention to detail.

My Blue Topaz Balinese Heritage ring arrived today, and Lenny, I can't believe how beautiful, detailed and big it is! Only the box was a little wet at the top, but there was absolutely no damage done to the contents within. And the contents! Nothing I've ever ordered online came so beautifully housed; the silk domed box, the beautiful papery ribbon with a flower wrapped around the box, a wonderful postcard and Novica card. Lenny, you did change my world, and my finger! How absolutely beautiful and crafted this ring is. I will definitely be purchasing more from this artist.

The earrings (God's Eye) are so very beautiful. You have a great talent. Thank you so much!
I received the earrings ""Cheerful"" very quickly. I love this style earring but usually they are so huge as to be gawdy, but these are petite, well-made, and with the many small dangles still manage to be very eye-catching despite the small size.
I received my earrings today and I had to put them on right away! They are absolutely beatiful and so well made. I love them!

Dear Lenny, I purchased your ""citrus crush"" necklace as a Christmas gift for my aunt. She absolutely loved it - it's so delicate and pretty, and the glowing colors remind me of the agates my aunt and I collect together on the beach in our town. She looks just beautiful wearing it! My aunt is a teacher at our local school, and she was particularly impressed by your desire to seek knowledge and impact the world, as well as by your talent and skill. We both thank you very much and wish you all the best!

I received my earrings today and they are gorgeous! Cheerful is the best way to describe them as that's how they make me feel when I wear them!
Lenny's 'Graceful Cascade' necklace is beautiful. It is a very delicate, feminine design that hardly looks hand made. I highly recommend this necklace.
I love the ""hypnotize"" earings. They are just as pictured and I know I would love wearing them. You are a great artist!!!
Dear Lenny, I'm wearing your ""Cheerful"" earrings today and they are absolutely exquisite! Please continue with your artistry. I am your great fan! Thank you, Christine
The necklace that I received is so beautiful and delicate. The packaging was so nice I almost didn't want to open it! Thank you. I am so thrilled. Debbie Ruiz
Dear Lenny! Thank you for the design of the earing with carnelian.I like the warm color of the carnelian.It would be a good idea to make an unusual necklace with the same warm color. I also am a big lover of blue stones and perls. I hope your talent will create something which can please the eye and impress imagination.Good luck. Natasha.
