"Today I work together with local silversmiths to promote Bali's beauty in our own way."
"Nyoman Sukartini is the full name given me by my parents when I was born. From the time I was little, my mother taught me how to be a 'Balinese woman.' In her mind, a Balinese woman must devote her life to God, her husband and also to society. She taught me how to cook and do housework and also how to make offerings, starting from very simple ones and continuing with the complex offerings, because almost every day is a ceremonial occasion in Bali.
"At the age of 16, I studied at SMIK (Sekolah Menengah Industri Kerajinan) in Gianyar. In this school, I learned batik, ceramics and other home industries for three years. Back from school, I took an apprenticeship with a silversmith in a village where they specialized in jewelry.
"Today I work together with local silversmiths to promote Bali's beauty in our own way. We make different kinds of jewelry, mostly with sterling silver, in both traditional and modern styles. I was fortunate to find Novica, a place where small artisans like me can share our new ideas and designs, and have a chance to be appreciated by people from all over the world."
The ring I just received is one of the most unique and beautiful I have purchased anywhere! Great value, too!
Just received the necklace ""Bohma Deity"" Is such a beautiful artwork, I can only describe it with one word: ' STUNNING'....... . WHAT A GIFTED ARTIST...... Thank you very much.

My favorite necklace to wear is ""Bhoma Deity"" by Nyoman Sukartini. Not only do I enjoy wearing this wonderfully crafted silver necklace, but have received quite a number of positive comments about it and the detailed artistry it contains. And more recently as I have begun to wear my new ""favorite"" ring - Sukartini's silver and peridot ring ""Evergreen"" - I have also received a number of compliments on it and my ""good taste"" in jewelry. Yet all the compliments belong to Sukartini. Many thanks and best wishes to you.
Lovely work and just really gorgeous!
Surkartini's ""Energized"" bracelet is a very creative and stunning piece of jewelry. It makes a great gift and my wife is very pleased with it. I recommend this artist to others seeking ""one-of-a-kind"" designs of quality.
Silver Discs ring: Lovely. Beautiful work. Impressive. Thank you!
You cannot imagine how beautiful the ""Rice Cluster"" earrings are until you actually view them in the box and especially while wearing. They are absolutely exquisite. I receive many, many compliments on them and I will be purchasing from this site and Ms. Sukartini again.again.and.again!! My Gift Certificate problem next year is already solved - they will come from ""NOVICA"" Thank You Mrs. Jaye Johnson
I have received the ring. It's very beautiful. Thank you for the fast shipping. Regards,

I would just like to say how thrilled I am with my ring that arrived today! The design and the presentation was stunning! Sukartini you are a very gifted lady and I will definitely keeping buying from the site. Best wishes, Keeley xx
Hello Sukartini, Thank you for the beautiful necklace....I wear it often and have received so many compliments! Your work is outstanding.
Hello Sukartini, I just received both my Shimmering waves necklace and earrings. I absolutely love them both. I'm in such awe. Very very unique. Your work is so beautiful. I am so very blessed to have found you and I definitely will be buying from you again. Many blessings and may god continue to bless you, Christy :)
I was looking for an oval shaped pendant & felt that the pendant 'Expansion' was a good design to collect. It came with six ovals of various size & cut-out within each oval. Two ovals are joined at each row, forming a vertical drop of 3 rows. It is a pretty long pendant but very bold & fortunately not intimidating because of various cut-outs. The pendant is smooth, well-made & sturdy. I'm glad to choose an unusual pendant with multi-ovals instead of the usual single oval-shaped pedant.
Dear Sukartini: My wife was very pleased with her ""Secret Love"" locket, which she got as a birthday present. She says it's very unique and she will always treasure it. The workmanship and details are indeed superb and at such a good price! We in America appreciate your talent and art. Please keep making such beautiful things. Elena and Chris

Thank you so much for the Peridot ring. It's the most handsome ring I've ever worn. I bought it for my birthday and everyone that came to celebrate with me were stunned by it's beauty. You are truly gifted. Now I am too. :)
Hi, I received my gorgeous bangle Hypnotic Sun on Monday 15.2.2010. I wore it for one day and unfortunately a piece has fallen off,and is lost. Its a piece that looks like teardrop,can you please advise as to what I can do about it. It truly is a beautiful piece of jewellery and I will certainly be buying more pieces of you in the near future.( Got my eye on something at the moment ). Thankyou Kim Watson

Dear Sukartini, I just purchase your Royal Medallion earrings on Amazon today. I am over joyed to get them. When I get them I will take a picture for you to see how awesome they look. They are so beautiful! Thank you again! Amelia

Dear Sukartini, I received my ever so beautiful Onyx dangle earrings ""Royal Medallion."" I just had to put them on. Thank you for the beautiful work! Sincerely, Amelia Petre/ridgefield, CT USA
Dearest Sukartini, I just received my ""Tune In"" earrings and I am very impressed with a number of things: 1) It came in a timely manner; 2) the packaging was just wonderful - it was not the plain jewelry box that you see everyday; and 3) the earrings are well-made, balanced and feels good to wear. I'm very excited to show it off to my friends! I also appreciate that you took time to include a handwritten note. And looking forward to seeing more of your amazing works. Regards, Annie
I love the heart bracelet. You are a very talented artist. I love Balinese jewellery.
The Sibak Tatah Leaves bracelet is beautiful. The amethyst stone is a deep violet color and contrasts well with the silver bracelet. Very delicate and feminine. The design is original and not too busy. A wonderful piece of art and I appreciate your skill and talent. Thank you Sukartini. Lynn F.
Absolutely beautiful piece of jewelry! Shipping was super fast as well. The piece was just as or even more exquisite than the photo. Thank you so much!
Hello Sukartini, Thank you for the gorgeous pearl band ring, 'Simplicity. I love it. Thank you again for your work. Mariana
Thank you for the most beautiful silver earrings. I bought the Hypnotic Moon set for my Wife's 25th Anniversary. I know that she will love them. You are very talented. Morris W. Hall
Ordered Queen of Hearts by Sukartini. By far, my favorite pair of earrings. Coincidentally, my first purchase from Novica!
Los Angeles, CA, USA
I ordered the Pearl dangle earrings ""White Lotus Bud"" fro Sukartini and the jewelry is very nice. Thank you Sukartini, you do good quality work.
Long Island, NY, USA
Earlier today, I recieved the ""together"" ring, I couldn't be any happier with this purchase! It was beautifully gift wrapped, and your work is gorgeous. Your love and dedication show in your jewelry, I will be looking for more items to purchase from you, best of luck to you and your family.
I purchased her ""Waves"" SS earrings & pendant. I am finding that many of my orders of SS earrings, etc may look great on the screen, but when I open my delivered package, I am soooo disappointed in the quality (or lack of substancial weight) of the item. However, when I open these 2 items, I was immediately overjoyed. Every time I wear them, I feel like a celebrity. I wish she would come up with some similar items.
I am so impressed with my first order from Novica. The silver work on the leaf bracelet is exceptional and the large amethyst stone is bright and has good color. I love it so much I wear it almost everyday. Sukartini is talented beyond words and I will definetly order more from her in the future. I also appreciated the handwritten greetings on the card from Bali that I received in my package. Keep up the amazing work Sukartini and Novica!
I just received ""cameo girl"" and I can't express how beautiful this item is. The amethysts surrounding the silver work have good color saturation and sparkle. The cow bone carving is lovely and the entire piece has a vintage feel with a modern twist. I like the fact that the leather cord has a lobster claw clasp but it isn't too big to fit through the large bail so chains could be changed out as needed. This is my second purchase from Sukartini and so far she is my favorite artisan with Novica. Both pieces I have from her are unique designs and have quality craftmanship. Sukartini, pease continue to produce these wonderful works of art.
What an absolute delight the ""Roots of Life"" sterling silver hoop earrings are! They are mesmerizing; you have such talent, and I truly do appreciate your work! I'm NOT going to let my daughter talk me out of them...they're all mine now! Okay, I'll let her borrow them! Ms. Sukartini, thank you so very much.
I purchased the ""Secret Love"" Locket Ring and it is even nicer than I had expected. It is extremely intricate and detailed. Not bulky at all. The locket opens up to reveal a small compartment which is easily accessible without it being noticed by anyone but the wearer! I am impressed with the detailed craftsmanship of this piece. The garnet teardrop just adds to the beauty of this piece. Thank you Sukartini for making such a beautiful piece of Art :-)

I received my earrings, Lotus Halo, yesterday. They are beautiful and the craftsmanship is excellent. I couldn't be more pleased with them. When I put them on, my husband loved the way they looked on me. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful work with me.

I received your earrings, ""Lotus Seed"" and am in love with them. The details are exquisite and so fine, the earrings are absolutely beautiful. Your designs and craftsmanship are truly world class. These are my second pair of earrings from you and I'll certainly be back for more. Thank you very much!
Sukartini, The Amethyst locket necklace, 'Treasure Forever' is simply wonderful. This is a knock her socks off gift. It holds Body incense powder perfectly and is complimented on when ever my girl wears it !
I love my ""Dewdrop Petals"" sterling silver bracelet and wear it often. It is delicate and light, and your design is outstanding! I am so happy that I was able to purchse the last one. My one suggestion is that you use a different clasp. The spring closure you used was not secure. I have replaced it with a much more secure lobster claw clasp and NOVICA service was very customer friendly in helping to rectify this problem as I did NOT want to send it back.
Have just received my order - the ""Angel Wings"" sterling silver ring, & it's absolutely gorgeous. Understated, elegany, & surprisingly comfortable to wear. Beautifully designed; impeccable workmanship. I'll really enjoy wearing this ring. Thank you!
I just received my earrings ""Extravagance"" and they are absolutely beautiful and excellent workmanship. Thank you Sukartini! I am looking forward to purchase more of your exquisite pieces.
Albuquerque, NM, USA
I ordered the ""Remembrance"" earrings from this artist and the filigree work is exquisite! I had to select priority premium shipping so they will arrive sooner! I can't wait until they get here and I can wear them! Her work is absolutely beautiful!
I just received your angel wings ring and it is truly beautiful. I have started only to purchase only jewelry that is very unique, striking or just lights me up when I see it. This ring is all that and more. You can be dressed up or down when wearing this ring. The design is simplistic, but completely unique and has a flow to it. So elegant and beautiful without any overkill. It takes very much talent to create something so elegant with just one medium and a simple, slightly curved line. Anyone that sees this ring would know what I am talking about. Very talented artist. Thank you so much. This one is a lifetime keeper.
I have just received my Mahabharata necklace and pendant, and 2 pair of earrings - Lily of Bali and Eden. All of them are exquisite and I am so happy with the quality of the detail. You are an amazing artist - I am so grateful to have discovered Novica and have access to such lovely artwork. Thank you.
Could you make me a necklace to match the ""Energized"" earrings and bracelet I purchased from you? They are just so beautiful that I would love a 20 inch necklace to complete the set. I don't know how to reach you directly. Thank you!
Beautiful jewelry, beautiful presentation!
