    Story Behind The Art: 

    Flowers and animals are my favorite subjects, but sometimes abstract geometrical shapes come into my mind, even though they are inspired strongly by nature originally. Wayan Sarjana has fine-tuned his silver-smithing skills over the years to become one of the most talented and innovative craftsmen in his village. Sarjana, an amateur historiographer, says he returns to his roots for inspiration, elaborating on ancient Indonesian designs to create elegantly unique silver jewelry. I was born in a village called Banjar Apuan Singapadu, Sukawati on the island of Bali in the year of 1970. I am the eldest of three children from a family of artists, but I was the first in my family to work with silver.

    I started to learn at the age of fifteen as an apprentice in my village with a man called Nyoman Regig. He was a good but strict teacher. If Made one piece just a little bit wrong he would be so angry with me, but he also taught me how to work under stress and short time limits. A good foundation if you ask me! After five years I started on my own to produce original pieces that I sold to local shops. And slowly I was able to save enough money to make my own workshop at home, where I work still until this day.

    My main inspirations come from nature and the daily life around me. Flowers and animals are my favorite subjects, but sometimes-abstract geometrical shapes come into my mind, even though they are inspired strongly by nature originally. Silver is not an easy medium to work with here, because the price changes all the time, but I cannot imagine doing anything else.

    I am happy and very grateful to the team at Novica, because they help me to promote my work outside Bali and they are supportive of my ideas and understanding in regards to the different aspects of being a silversmith. I hope that the people around the world enjoy my work and that it if there is anything I can do with my talent to contact me through Novica.

    These years with Novica have brought so many changes to my life. Now I have something to be proud of, including the fact that the international world appreciates me as an artist - a silversmith from Bali. I was only selling my jewelry door-to-door before, and my life was in the hands of shop owners. With Novica I am now able to create my own life, and to earn a consistent income. There are now five people working with me. One by one they came to my place asking for work. They are happy to work with me, for almost five years now, each also happy to be a part of Novica's success -- and happy to earn more money than they ever received before.

    • Cool ring, nice color stone but . . .

      Option: Red - 9

      Overstock's delivery was really terrible. It took nearly 3 weeks to get after ordering. They need to get their act together cuz there's no excuse for that. The ring is nice but just keep in mind the band is quite narrow. It does say in the description that it is 3mm. I thought it looked like a woman's ring when I first saw it & I was ready to return it, but when I tried it on, I really liked it. The color of the stone is unique & goes nicely w/all the clothes I wear in winter. Size of stone is big & it makes the ring look masculine -- it makes up for the narrow band. I still think the band should be wider cuz it is a man's ring.

      Handmade carnelian type Stone ring is beautifully Red made in an exotic place I waited a while for it but I had patience because I knew I would have a beautiful ring

    • it's a nice ring but...

      the ring's ok but for the price you'd expect something a bit more denser than light fair pewter style silver. it's rather thin and the stone is just glued in with only two remotely thin brackets holding it in place. the ring isn't very sturdy, it's a fun ring but not for daily use. if they put a $^%.(& price tag on it with whatever shipping would make more sense. the ring is also tidy, rather small on a man's hand. i'd figure by looking at it in person that it's more a woman's ring, someone with narrow fingers.

      I was very excited about getting this ring, but was not a fan when I got it. It was a little smaller then I had hoped and the 2 side prongs sit a little high so when I looked at the ring the prongs were all I saw. It is just not for me. Other may really like it.
