Zayd Makarim was born in West Java. He recalls: 'I did paintings and sculptures for fun. 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 go to Bali, and to travel, and my dream came true.' In Bali he worked for a famous jewelry designer and he began in time to make his own jewelry. 'It started because of my wife's birthday. I wanted to create a gift for her, so I made earrings. I could not believe my eyes because they were so beautiful, and she loved them! I started taking my passion seriously and I decided to create my own jewelry. I find inspiration in everything. I love architecture and I am eager to know and learn more about other nations' cultures. My wife helps me a lot. When I think of something beautiful, I think about her and what would be good for her. She means everything to me.'
