'I've wanted to create silver jewelry since I was in elementary school. By the time I was in junior high, I was crafting my own pieces, thanks to a friend's parents who are silversmiths,' Komang Suastra says. 'When I finished high school, I set up my own workshop and started crafting jewelry there. Creating new designs is very exciting.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
