Made Sriasih's father was one of the senior silversmiths, well trained in the jewelry arts. This skill was passed on to his daughter.
Made Sriasih was born in Bali on April 14, 1964, in a village long renowned as the island's center of silver production. Her father was one of the senior silversmiths, well trained in the jewelry arts. This skill was passed on to his daughter, Made, from the time she was 12-years old until she got married. She learned how to select quality material and create her pieces with precision, employing the village's traditional motifs and designs.
Although Sriasih studied anthropology in college, she decided to start her own silver business with the support of her husband. Currently her workshop employs ten other artisans. It has not always been easy for Sriasih, but she always remembers the sage words of one client, who said, "Success won't fall down from the sky and if you want it you must try hard to reach it."
Braiding silver strands and sterling spirals, Achara's design creates intricate optical illusions. The textures seem to flow in one direction, then the other. The handsome necklace ends with ornate cylinders.
