Story Behind the Art: Gianyar is a part of Bali known throughout the world for its beautiful landscapes and exceptional artistic legacy. In 1990, Buana decided to learn to craft silver jewelry from a friend in Celuk. Supported by his family, Buana has continued his profession as silversmith. 'I am thankful to God for giving me such a great gift so I can make a living for my family. Not much, perhaps, but enough for our simple way of life.'
I love Novica jewelry, the whole small industry concept, everything! I've had my eye on the artist Buana for sometime. I have seen them offered on other sites, but the price on Overstock.com was the compelling point to order them now. I received them in great time and they were even nicer in reality than I thought they would be and in a very nice gift box. I loved them so much that I ordered the "Sleeping Beauty" pendant for myself for Christmas. I can't wait to receive it.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Exactly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
This is one of the most beautiful jewelry i've ever come across. The craftsmanship is flawless, more than worthy of the price. It is not heavy (IMO) as some reviewers have stated. I'm very sensitive to having my earlobe stretched and these earrings do not even come close to doing that. I've worn them all day several days in a row without even feeling that they are there. I love them so much i've bought similar works in a ring, pendant, and bracelet from novica.
They are of great quality , the little faces are adorable . I'm' disappointed on how heavy they are. I can't wear them to long they hurt my ears . The hooks are way to big. Over all just wish they were smaller and not so heavy!
I just received these earrings and they are absolutely beautiful. The workmanship is just so detailed and the size is just right. I love to get jewelry that is totally different and these sure are. I had gotten another pair many years ago in Canada that were made out of bone but these have so much more detail . Would recommend these to anyone.
