Story Behind the Art: 

With imagination comes inspiration. I just start designing, it does not require much equipment, just paper, and pencil. I love Bali, our culture and customs are unique and diverse. Crafting traditional Balinese silver jewelry cannot be done with machines; they would never be as good as our handmade jewelry. That means that every piece we make is unique since everything is done by hand there will always be slight differences though the design remains the same.

Though my name is Putu Lestari Dewi, I am known by my married name, Dewi Putera. I was born in Gianyar and I come from a family of artists. My dad paints as a personal hobby, he has a large collection at home and I must have inherited his talent and interest in art. I am especially interested in Balinese artists, I feel proud to see their creations. I wish I could be an artist like them, be that creative so people would enjoy my work.

My husband and I have three daughters. Having children changed my life because now my time belongs to them: no matter how busy I am, they are the most important in my life. I love drawing and painting, and after meeting my husband for the first time, I kept thinking of him and I even made sketches of his face since he was always on my mind. Today, I channel my talent in designing jewelry. My friends see me as a person who is always giving a hand, but I hang out less with them than I used to.

I am a self-taught artist, I learned all I could from reading books. With imagination comes inspiration. I just start designing, it does not require much equipment, just paper, and a pencil. Then I explain my design to the silversmiths I work with and they craft the piece with manual tools. I use silver as raw material and also gems. I like to use unique and uncommon gems because they look different. However, sometimes it is hard to find unique gems. Our mission when we started this venture is to promote Balinese cultures as well as artisans living in harsh circumstances. And yet, their work is worn everywhere in the world. We did not count on a large capital to support our mission, but we never gave up as we believed wholeheartedly we would succeed.

Eventually, we found ourselves in a position to be able to offer jobs to about 20 Balinese silversmiths. We have been working together for decades now, them crafting the jewelry that I design. 90 percent of our work is handmade and we are very proud of it. By joining Novica, we hope our silversmiths will get more jobs and better promotion for our products.
