"I've come to realize the importance of having a skill, so you may have more opportunities in life."
Made Budhi Yasa learnt the silversmith's craft from his wife, an experienced jeweler. "There are many people in my community, including neighbors, who were unable to finish their studies due to financial reasons. Some have had to resort to begging on the streets. Based on my experience learning to work with silver, I decided to teach them what I knew. I've come to realize the importance of having a skill, so you may have more opportunities in life.
"I decided to adapt a workshop in my house so I could teach those who wanted to learn free of charge. I want to share my experience with others so that they can learn and have better opportunities to provide for their own families.
"Balinese wisdom says 'there is no second chance for the person who has a strong will.' We must move on and help others by doing good things.
"My hope is to preserve the legacy of all artisans, as well as the quality of their work. I work together with a team of active artisans, as well as my wife and a few more people from my neighborhood. I keep thinking about expanding my work by creating new designs.
"By purchasing our collections through Novica's website, you're not just helping me, but at the same time you will be helping other families to have the opportunity to learn and work with us, in order to reach a better quality of life."
The ring is exquisite - light, subtle and elegant. Best of all, as my fingers seem to be in a transitional stage in terms of size, it is flexible enough to get over the knuckle and then be tightened a bit once one. A significant plus! Unique and lovely.
I received my ""Tendrils"" ring, and I couldn't be happier! it's so hard to find simple modern silver jewelry and I love it!! You are a wonderful artist and I look forward to purchasing more of your work! Thank you so much!
I just want to say that the ring that was made by this artist was an absolute HIT !!!!!! It was a gift for my daughter in law and she LOVES IT !!!! thank you for your artistry and eye for beauty---very, very nice piece.
I am extremely pleased with the bracelet I purchased. It is very substantial and is the perfect size. It looks better than I expected.
Thank you for the most beautiful artistic work. I bought the Hypnotic Heart and necklace for my Wife's 25th Anniversary which is November 1,2011. I know that she will be very happy wearing them. Morris W. Hall
I just received my ""Balinese Forest"" ring...WOW!!! It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! A little bulkier than I expected, the workmanship is fantastic...fully finished on the inside so only smooth silver touches your hand. The stone is PERFECT, I can't say enough good things about this ring. I will DEFINTELY buy again! Thank you so much! J. Simoneau, Kentucky USA
I just purchased the ""Rolling Waves"" blue topaz ring as a present for my wife and it arrived yesterday. It is gorgeous and she is going to love it. I love the access that Novica gives us to such wonderful artists from around the world! The best place to buy gifts on the Internet!!!!
I am totally in love with my 'Bali Romance' heart necklace. I have wanted a heart necklace for years and finally found the perfect one. It is just the right size and weight. It is also the perfect depth--just deep enough to be interesting, but not so much so that it flips over. The picture totally doesn't do it justice. It is way more incredible in person. The silversmithing is spectacular. It is a masterpiece. Thank you!! :)
I received my ""Light of Truth"" blue topaz ring last week. It's beautiful, very well made and I'll wear it often. I've told many friends where it came from. Thank you BudhiYasa!
I just received the Bali Romance Heart necklace, I love it! The length is just the right length I was looking for and I am a huge fan of hearts! My favorite piece so far! I just love novica.com's jewerly and knowing that I am helping artists from another country make it even more special. Thank you so much and keep up the great work!
