"I love to create something from many kinds of materials. God gave us a lot of things that are already amazing to make into nice jewelry."
"My relatives and friends know me as a tenacious, full of spirit, a perfectionist.
"I was born on June 7, 1990, in Celuk, renowned as the birthplace of silversmiths. That's why I decided to learn about silver and jewelry crafting.
"When I was 10 years old, my parents told me to learn about silver jewelry because someday, when I got older, I'd be able to make a living from this skill. They are master jewelers and have worked in this field since 1982, mostly in silver but also in gold. They taught me everything. The way they love their work made me love this world of jewelry.
"When I was young, I enjoyed creating new designs for my parents. I like drawing and I came up with a variety of jewelry designs. I even earned some money with this. I love this job! It's like a hobby that makes money for living. I'm still single, and I feel like nothing will stop me in this career.
"The nicest part of my jewelry is the uniqueness of its style. Although it shows an ethnic influence, it's different. The materials I use are silver, gold, gemstones, pearl, leather, wood and even bone. I love to create something from many kinds of materials. God gave us a lot of things that are already amazing to make into nice jewelry.
"Besides designing jewelry, I love to play football.
"I heard about Novica a few years ago, and I really wanted to be one of the artisans. I hope you'll give me feedback on my designs so that we can work together as a team."
