"Flowers and animals are my favorite subjects, but sometimes abstract geometrical shapes come into my mind, even though they are inspired strongly by nature originally."
Wayan Sarjana has fine-tuned his silver-smithing skills over the years to become one of the most talented and innovative craftsmen in his village.
Sarjana, an amateur historiographer, says he returns to his roots for inspiration, elaborating on ancient Indonesian designs to create elegantly unique silver jewelry.
"I was born in a village called Banjar Apuan Singapadu, Sukawati on the island of Bali in the year of 1970. I am the eldest of three children from a family of artists, but I was the first in my family to work with silver.
"I started to learn at the age of fifteen as an apprentice in my village with a man called Nyoman Regig. He was a good but strict teacher. If Made one piece just a little bit wrong he would be so angry with me, but he also taught me how to work under stress and short time limits. A good foundation if you ask me!
"After five years I started on my own to produce original pieces that I sold to local shops. And slowly I was able to save enough money to make my own workshop at home, where I work still until this day.
"My main inspirations come from nature and the daily life around me. Flowers and animals are my favorite subjects, but sometimes-abstract geometrical shapes come into my mind, even though they are inspired strongly by nature originally.
"Silver is not an easy medium to work with here, because the price changes all the time, but I cannot imagine doing anything else.
"I am happy and very grateful to the team at Novica, because they help me to promote my work outside Bali and they are supportive of my ideas and understanding in regards to the different aspects of being a silversmith.
"I hope that the people around the world enjoy my work and that it if there is anything I can do with my talent to contact me through Novica.
"These years with Novica have brought so many changes to my life. Now I have something to be proud of, including the fact that the international world appreciates me as an artist - a silversmith from Bali. I was only selling my jewelry door-to-door before, and my life was in the hands of shop owners. With Novica I am now able to create my own life, and to earn a consistent income. There are now five people working with me. One by one they came to my place asking for work. They are happy to work with me, for almost five years now, each also happy to be a part of Novica's success -- and happy to earn more money than they ever received before."

Thank you so much! My Dragon Eye Carnelian ring is beautiful. I am a jewelry designer and I work with beads. I have a very special carnelian and turquoise necklace that I made with Bali silver beads. Your ring is a perfect match! I hope to see more of your work in the future. Abigail Peace
