Story Behind the Art:
'Nyoman Sukartini is my full name. At the age of 16, I studied at SMIK (Sekolah Menengah Industri Kerajinan) in Gianyar. For 3 years I learned batik, ceramics and other home industries. Then I took an apprenticeship with a silversmith in a village where they specialized in jewelry. At the same time, I asked a very good friend of mine--who later became my husband--to learn silverwork with me so we could work on silver together. In 1989 we married. In the same year, with less than 50 dollars loaned from my mother-in-law, we started to make our own silver! Thank God that, after facing difficult times, at present I live happily with my family and we have been able to educate our three sons.'

This necklace was a very nice purchase. The charm is very well crafted. The only down fall is that the chain is a little short but because of the material I will believe it will stretch due to the weight of the chain.
I am an avid dragon collector and this necklace was a great addition to my collection. I was surprised at how short the "chain" was on the necklace ( I didnt read the description) but I would make it somewhere between 20-22 inches instead of the 18 it is. I would still purchase>>>
