"Art and jewelry aren't new things for me. When they were young, my great grandparents worked with diamond jewelry and my grandparents [crafted] batik textiles."
"My name is Diah Ayu and I'm from Jogja, in Central Java. I live in Bali with my husband and two daughters. The older is Sarah, who is 13 years old, and the younger is Sekar, 11. They both like to paint and have been learning from a senior painter for almost four years.
"Art and jewelry aren't new things for me. When they were young, my great grandparents worked with diamond jewelry and my grandparents ran a cottage industry of crafting batik textiles. I assume I got the art in my blood from them.
"I started to work seriously with silver the first year I lived in Bali, around 1995. The unique culture, charm, and beauty of this paradise island have become my never-ending source of inspiration. My main jewelry themes are flowers, animals, stars, the moon, sun, cultural symbols and other ornamentations. There are four people from my village who help me craft my designs.
"Designing and my family are my priorities in life. My family – especially my husband – gave their best support to what I've been doing and I am really thankful for having them in my life."
So far I’ve purchased pearl rings 'Sunflower' and 'Moonlight Romance' and Pearl bracelet, 'Radiant Sunflower'. They are exquisite! I hope that Diah Ayu and I will develop lifetime artist-customer relationships: I am looking forward to her new creations.
I was very excited to receive my parcel from Novica. It arrived quickly and in excellent shape. I am very very happy with the unique and beautiful pearl ring and earrings that I purchased. I have been looking for a unique pearl ring for sometime and have never found anything so interesting and unusual before. Thanks so much for your craftsmanship.
After receiving my item, Bajang Flower, I cannot extol its virtues enough. The choker is beautiful and garners more compliments than you can shake a stick at. Thank you for your attention to detail and the elegant craftsmanship that has made this one of my favorite pieces.
I received Bajang Flower last week. I love it! It's a beautiful choker and I've worn it several times already. I will be a repeat customer.
Diah, I've received ""Secrets of my Heart"" and ""Symbol of a God"" and love them both! They are both so gracefully elegant and artistically detailed. Secrets of my Heart was a Mother's Day gift for my Mom and she cherishes it. Symbol of a God has become my favorite piece of jewelry. Both items were also beautifully wrapped. Thank you!!
I just wanted to say how much I love the earrings ""moonlight"" which I purchased two years ago for my wedding day. Today is my anniversary and I am wearing them, they mean so much and are so beautiful, these will be a family heirloom that will be passed on to future generations. Diah Ayu is one of the most talented jewelry artist I have come across and am so grateful that I have something created by her. Thank you so much for the beautiful piece of art and your personal note to me.
i adore the cuff bracelet ""Radiant Sunflower"". It is so beautifully and intricately handcrafted. It fits an average size wrist very nicely and the pearl is the ""piece de resistance"". Thank you for making such a gorgeous piece. I am going to order some pearl earrings to compliment the bracelet. I love it so. Thank you

My sweetheart discovered the ring style ""nature"" by Ms. Ayu, and after looking around with local artists and on-line we decided that we really felt the style was right for us. The price is also awesome. We received them faster than expected in cute little padded boxes and really neat thinly shaved wooden 'ribbon with rose bows' wrapping them. We get to put them on for real in a day.
I love my brooch/pendant, it can easily be worn both ways. The workmanship is wonderful, it is a beautiful peace. Thank you, Diah Ayu
I just received my earrings--""Teardrop""--they are so beautiful, the picture does not do them justice. Beautiful black and silver--a nice weight without being too heavy and so lovely. I cannot wait to wear them!!!
