"My wife helps me a lot… when I think of something beautiful, I think about her. She means everything to me."
Zayd Makarim was born in West Java on August 2, 1968. From the time he was a child, he liked art. "I did paintings and sculptures for fun," he recalls. "It started as an assignment for school but, by doing them, I discovered I liked art so much that it became one of my passions."
As an adult, Makarim's job took him to Bali. "I'd always had a dream to come to Bali, and also to travel," he says. "And my dream came true." In Bali he worked for a famous jewelry designer and that's where he learned about silver and design, and began making his own jewelry.
"It all started because of my wife's birthday. I wanted to create a gift for her, so I made a pair of earrings. When they were done, I could not believe my eyes because they were so beautiful... and she loved them!" he confides. "Many of her friends asked if I could make some for them. I started thinking about taking my passion seriously and I decided to create my own jewelry line."
"I like art and find inspiration in everything that surrounds me. I love architecture and I am eager to know and learn more about other nations' culture. In my pieces, I want to express myself as well as what surrounds me.
"My wife helps me a lot. Thanks to her I get really inspired because when I think of something beautiful, I think about her and what would be good for her. She means everything to me."
Thank you Mr. Makarim, I bought this for a friends birthday. And she told me it's the most beautiful braclet she has ever seen with very very beautiful detail :) keep up the good work

Dear Zayd, please accept my sincere thanks to your wife for being the inspiration behind the magnificent pieces I recently purchased through Novica. I am stunned by the beauty and craftsmanship of this extraordinary jewelry. The smokey quarts necklace and matching earrings are every bit as gorgeous, if not moreso, as the picture on the site. Absolutely fabulous, I am pleased beyond measure. Thank you so very much for enhancing my wardrobe and my confidence. It is a wonderful feeling to wear a piece of jewelry that exhibits such grace, feminity and class. This set is exquisite and I am positively certain I will be purchasing plenty more of your very beautiful work. Once again, many many thanks, and incidentally, it is my absolute pleasure to give my business to a man who is not only extremely talented with an eye for detailed beauty, but one who I can only admire and highly commend for speaking so wonderfully of your wife. May you both be blessed. Sincerely, Donna
I received my silver bracelet yesterday shortly after contemplating the virtue of patience.( I was so eager to get it I was very hyper) This piece is extraordinary! It has not left my arm since I put it on. Congratulations, you obviously have a gift. ""Delicate Bracelet "" is very substantial!
I just received my Trinity bracelets today. They are the most beautiful silver bangles that I have ever seen. Your talent as a jewelry designer and craftsman is very obvious. They are absolutely perfect. I will cherish them always. Thank you so much for your excellent work.
Mr. Makarim, The items I ordered are more beautiful than the pictures on the site! I am very happy with my purchase. Your workmanship and design is excellent. Keep up the beautiful work! I sincerely hope that my purchase will make a positive contribution towards you and your family. God Bless!
I just received my ""Java Palace"" earrings, and the workmanship is incredible. I love them, and I look forward to purchasing more pieces in the future from your collection. My warmest regards, Diane Miner

Zayd Makarim's ""Prayer"" earrings surprised me, not with their beauty, but with their body: those rising spirals that so enchant are no mere surface pattern, but rather a design cut clear through the earrings' depth and articulated front and back. His care in this detail bespeaks pride in his craft, and it is this craftsmanship that enables him to create earrings that are strong without being showy, appropriate equally for a wedding or trip to the grocery store, and worth, without doubt, every penny I paid for them.
Stunningly beautiful. Thank you very much.
Thank you, Zayd Makarim, for designing the exquisite earrings, ""Vineyard"". May your wife continue to inspire you to fashion such beautiful creations.
Dear Zayd, My beautiful bangles and earrings arrived today. I have always been partial to swirls and your designs are absolutely exquisite and the workmanship is amazing! They are destined to be my favorite pieces of jewelry and I am sure I will be back for a few more complimentary pieces. Warm regards,
I just received my ""Empress"" ring, and it is beautiful!! I bought it to wear to a charity ball in December. It will look wonderful with my dress. I am so glad I came upon the NOVICA site.
Dear Zyad: I received the beautiful tortice shell, silver earrings you made today and they are truely beautiful. Your earrings were the first purchase that I made from Novica and I will be ordering more in the future for friends and family members as well as mysef.

What a lovely surprise! Wrapped up in a beautiful jewel box.... just for me. The Java Palace earrings are more breathtaking than their picture. Nice work with the silver and the quartz. Anyone who wears these will feel like a queen. Thank you so very much from across our world. I have already place my next order. I can hardly wait to have just a few pieces of this fine jewelry in my possession. Sincerely,
I ordered the Moonlight Dazzle necklace and Prayer earrings for my mother in law for Christmas, and just got them in yesterday. They are beautiful!!! I hope she loves them as much as I think she will. Thank you so much!!
Zayd Makarim's Paradise Lantern ring is beautiful. It is a substantial piece but it is so balanced and elegant. You don't realize you have it on until you look down. It does have a luminous glow as a lantern would have. Unique and delightful.
Mr. Makarim, You are very talented. I purchased the 'Sound of a Bell"" bracelet as a birthday present to myself. I have taken it off only to bathe and sleep. The bell's chime is unbelievably lovely. My best wishes to you and your wife.
Dear Zayd - The ""Blue Goddess"" ring is gorgeous. It is large, bold, flamboyant, and elegant. The intricate design surrounding the ring is part of its beauty. Thank you for your exceptional design and workmanship.
I received my order today. The smithing of the ""Coins of the Kingdom"" ring and earrings is exquisite. I will enjoy these pieces for years to come. He is truly an artist.
I am very excited and happy to have such lovely earrings, thank you very much. I appreciate your workmanship and will wear them with pride. All the best.

Dear Zayd, The silver coin cufflinks you made arrived just in time for Father's Day! My husband opened them tonight, and he said they are the most beautiful cufflinks he has ever seen in his life! I agree! Your workmanship is meticulous; and how they glow!! Thank you for your excellent work. (I may buy the matching ring for his birthday!) Sincere best regards, Katherine Donovan-Sherpa Charleston, South Carolina USA
I have purchase two items from Zayd. I love both of them. They are made very well and I have gotten many compliments. The items are made very solid and durable. I will continue to add to my collection. Thank you Zayd!!
Many thanks Mr Makarim for my Cloud Hoop earrings which have just arrived. They are beautifully crafted & I love the detail in the ""curls"". I look forward to seeing more of your work.
I bought Mr. Makarim's gorgeous sterling silver hoop earrings. The intricacy is outstanding!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BRACELET ! THE LITTLE SILVER BELLS MAKE SUCH A LOVELY TINKLING SOUND AS I WALK.
I LOVE YOUR BRACELET OF SILVER BELLS!YOU ARE TRULY A GIFTED ARTIST!
I purchased the smoky quartz 'Levels of Life' ring. It's gorgeous and comfortable to wear. The stone is brilliant, workmanship excellent. It's elegant and unique, a piece I'll treasure for a looong time !!!.
This is my first order placed with Novica so I didn't really know what to expect. I ordered the cloud climber bracelet from Mr. Zayd Makarim and I received it today. It is even more beautiful than in the picture with fine workmanship. I am so happy with it. Thank you.
I LOVE these bracelets!! They are so beautiful I had to buy three more! I wish I could thank the artist personally - If You see this, Mr. Zayd Makarim, Namaste! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful artwork with me. From Arizona, USA.
I just received my items and they are absolutely gorgeous! I bought the Lavender Teardrop Amethyst Necklace and matching earrings along with the Blue Topaz Azure Teardrop earrings. PLEASE make a matching Lavender Teardrop bracelet !!!! Beautiful work Zayd, I am just amazed. I'll be back for more! Thank you so much!!
My stunning necklace arrived and I was extremely pleased! The craftsmanship is superb and I have had countless compliments on my teardrop necklace for its uniqueness and beauty. Thank you for a beautiful piece, I will order more from this artist!
My first purchase from this talented artist was a ring that Novica brought for sale to QVC. I quickly ordered a pair of beautiful earrings to coordinate right here at the Novica site. Zayd's talent and quality craftsmanship are evident in each of those pieces. They always inspire compliments! Thank you Zayd for making such beauty and to your wife for inspiring it. I just ordered two more pieces with the Bhudda curl motif to coordinate with those pieces I already cherish. I know I'll love them. Keep up the great work.
I received the ""Garnet choker, 'Mysterious Dragonfly'"" today. It is a very beautiful necklace. From the website picture it may give you the illusion of bit rigidity but in person it is a very very delicate necklace. It looks very beautiful and stunning just not only in jewellery box but also when you actually wear it. I really like it and I appreciate the idea of design and hard work to make it real!
Thank you for the earrings 'Red Herring'. The workmanship is excellent and the design is very clever and charming. The 'Buddha curl' design is wonderful and really suits the subject (fish). I like that the earrings are jointed between the body and the tail so that they swing and glitter. I can't believe that you went to the trouble to sculpt little anatomically correct fins everywhere a real herring would have them - what great artistry! I am very proud to own these earrings. The fish look quite joyful - it makes me grin every time I see them. Thank you Zayd.
I purchased a pair of blue topaz earrings in a triangular style 'blue trinity' - they are lovely, clear light blue stones but not too heavy to wear. I asked my husband to purchase another pair of earrings by this artist which I expect I will enjoy wearing just as much.
I have purchased 2 pairs of earrings by Zayd Makarim and I couldn't be more pleased. Both pairs are beautiful, distinctive looking, and perfectly crafted. I intend to buy more from this artist. I actually bought the earrings for gifts, but am keeping a pair for myself!
beautiful workmanship. I generally buy expensive jewelry and this is top-notch!
Many thanks! I just received your Smokey quartz solitaire ring, 'Levels of Life'. It is absolutely beautiful! It is long, elegant and sophisticated... so comfortable on my hand. Such exquisite details/designs. I am proud to wear your creation and certainly will continue to tell my friends of Novica and the wonderful artisans who create such beautiful masterpieces! All the best to you, Zayd! :)

Just reciecied my blue topaz earings - they are BEAUTIFUL! To my surpise the back sides are finished just a beautifully as the front! Thank you so much for your wonderful craftsmanship!
Although the stone in the ring is large, it is well balanced and stays centered on my finger. It is very comfortable to wear.
Beautiful work of ""Cloud Bubble"" ring and ""Tortoise Shell' earrings. Thank you very much. Graciela
I purchased a few items from Zayd Makarim and the first item to arrive was my most anticipated purchase, ""Balinese Walnut"" bracelet. The box the bracelet arrived in, is itself a work of art, then I tried on the bracelet. Wow! I had intended this piece to wear only on special occasions, however the beauty and craftsmanship makes me want to incorporate this beautiful piece of jewelry into my everyday and special occasions bracelet. Thank you Zayd Makarim! I cannot wait for your other works of art to arrive.
I cannot praise Zayd Makarim's shills enough! I am slowly growing my jewelry collection and I am finding I am adding more and more pieces created by Zayd Makarim. My latest earring acquisition, ""Cloud Hoop"" definitely do not disappoint. Each piece has impressed me and made me yearn for more creations by this extremely talented artist. Thank you Zayd Makarim and please keep creating, you are truly gifted.
Today I received Zayd Makarim's beautiful creations ""Spiral Spheres"" and I could not be more pleased with them. I own several pieces of jewelry made by Zayd Makarim and I know I will be back for more. Thank You!
I help a friend to order a nice ring called Cloud Bubble. She loved it. She get that as a herself gift because she was pregnant of a second child. When she show me the ring the day I meet the one week beautiful girl I was so happy to see how this ring mark the day as something memorable. Of course I got a Temple bells earring before help my friend to buy her ring. I just love it. I not need other jewel to dress up. I would like so see more in Novica Live.

Greetings Mr. Makarim, I want to leave you feedback regarding the prasiolite lime teardrop necklace u designed. I got it as a gift for mothers day. My husband ordered it through Amazon.com, so it does not show up on my Novica account. It is my favorite necklace, I wear it every day, I rarely take it off.. thank you for this creation it is a work if art. Warm reagrds, Teresa Muniz
I have received my first purchase from Novica, and I am absolutely thrilled with both pieces. I chose Mr. Makarim's ""Lime Teardrops"" in Prasiolite; I got both the pendant necklace and the matching earrings. His work is simply jawdropping! I'd like to also point out the beauty of the unusual chain; I'm not certain what it's called but it appears to be almost woven or braided sterling silver...more intricate workmanship and a wonderful surprise!! Thank you so very much.
Purchased a bracelet from Zayd and I received it the other day and I just like to say how absolutely beautiful it is. I love it and haven't taken it off since opening the beautiful gift box it came it. Thank you so much Zayd, you are truly an exquisite maker of wonderful jewellery. Good work. Tracey
Dear Zayd! I have bought the wonderful pieces from you: Glistening Borobudur and Moonlight Dazzle with amethyst stones. They are amasingly beautiful and meticulously crafted! Everybody who sees me wearing them notices them immediately. Although in love with amethyst, I love your buddhist patterns on the ring and earings! I consider ordering a bracelet with the same pattern. Thank you so much! Veronika, Lund, Sweden
Mr. Makarim - the frangipani necklace is stunning! The craftmanship is excellent. I am eagerly awaiting the earrings so that i can purchase them. My sister is also delighted by your work. After seeing the necklace she made her first novica purchase and brought a pair of your earrings and your empress ring. These were also marvellous pieces.
I received the gorgeous 'Levels of Life'smoky quartz solitaire ring. I was instantly attracted to the ""Buddha like"" resemblance this ring emanated. It wasn't until after I read the description of the ring that I realized Zayd had in fact designed this with Buddha in mind. I knew then that this piece was meant for me. Thank you Zayd for creating such inspirational jewellery!
I had purchased the 'Paradise Lantern' Smoky quartz dangle earrings to match the ring that this piece goes with (Levels of Life smoky quartz ring). This is a beautiful pair of earrings that not only look at lanterns, it also gives one the feeling of looking at images of Buddha. The smoky quartz is the perfect gem to give the feel of royalty combined with Spirituality. Such a beautiful set Zayd has created! Thank you :-)
Dear Zayd, Thank you so much for your beautiful workmanship: both pairs of earrings are simply gorgeous. I was wearing the temple bells today and my visitor became another ""addition/convert"" to the artists of Novica. Thank you again. Best regards, Greetje Brandsma
Dearest Zayd, I just received my ""Paradise Lantern"" Pendant necklace to match the earrings and the ring I had purchased and it's even more beautiful than the picture! I cannot wait to wear this as a complete set! Thank you for making such Faith-inspired jewellery! I bought it because it reminded me of Buddha :-)
I just received the ""Temple Bells"" earrings from Zayd and they are lovely! They are rightfully named because they definitely resemble the bells one would ring when entering a temple. the earrings are a good size - not too small and not too long, but certainly noticeable and subtle at the same time. Zayd your Faith is definitely depicted in this pair of Art. Thank you for your work :-)
Wonderful pendant! Your 'Azure Teardrop' pendant necklace is just beautiful! The matching earrings were given as a gift to me and match beautifully!
Your Blue Topaz 'Butterfly of Hope' pendant just arrived. Simply Gorgeous!
I just received the prasiolite pendant necklace ""Lime Teardrop"". It's very beautiful!!
I just received the prasiolite pendant necklace ""Lime Teardrop"". It's very beautiful!!
I just received the "" miracles"" earrings I bought to wear for my October wedding...they are even more beautiful than I anticipated. Thank you so much for your beautiful work. I would love it if I could commission a hair comb to match the earring design... Maybe customer service can help ? Thank you so much Mona Malone
Your 'Sound of a Bell' bracelet is just....perfect! Love it!
Purchased your 'Universal Coin' cuff links for my husband. They are Exquisite! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with the world!!!
Love your ""Singing Bells"" bracelet.....except for one thing....it doesn't ""sing""! The bells make absolutely no sound whatsoever, not one of them; not even the faintest tinkling noise. :(. The bracelet would be even more special if the bracelet had some sound with wrist movement!

The ""Blue Honeysuckle"" earrings are delightful. The tops show Mr. Makarim's wonderful silverwork, giving rise to the delicate blue agate blossoms. So dainty (and for Indonesian silver jewelry, remarkably light and comfortable)! Thank-you, Zayd!
The quality and detail of my Buddha's Tears bracelet exceeded my expectations. It was on back order so I had to wait a little bit but so worth the wait.
Iloilo City, Philippines
I bought your Garnet necklace and earrings ""Blessing"" and even though they were only shipped yesterday and I have not received them yet, I want to tell you that your designs are unique and beautiful. I also love to buy your rings but I'm a size 5. Please make your rings available in size 5 even if its ""made to order"". I will definitely buy them. -Catherine
Casper, Wyoming, USA
""Sound of a Bell"" and ""Rosebud"" are two of the most beautiful items that I have seen, or worn. The bracelet and earrings really knock. me. out. every time that I see them. Thanks so much.
Bought the Coins of the Kingdom Indonesian Good Fortune Sterling Silver Bracelet a few years ago and I just love it. Thank you for making such beautiful pieces of jewelry. Now looking to buy the earrings to match. :-)
Zayd, You are a very creative artist. I LOVE the Temple bangle very much. I couldn't wait to open the box and when I did I wasn't disappointed. Extremely well made and very different to all the other silver jewellry out there. I love your work and hope to buy more from you, as the quality is five star!!!
Your passion is seen in your beautiful works of art! I recently purchased one if your smoky quartz rings for my fiancé. She loved it! Many people have commented on the rings beauty and attention to detail. Thank you for you wonderful work. -Peter.
I just received my Eye of the Soul ring. Its beautiful! I had to wear it right away! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the spiral detail was also inside the band. Its rare to see so much detail on a ring. You're an amazing artist, and I can't wait to see all your new creations.
Dear Mr Makarim, I would like to thank you for the beautiful ring ""Blue Depths"". It's the most beautiful ring I have never seen. Your workmanship is very delicate and incredible. Thank you so much and I returned to you many times. Caroline France
