Sukartini's story

Sukartini is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handcrafted jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones.

Sukartini has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is her story:

"My mother instilled in me the value of a 'Balinese woman,' including how to prepare temple offerings. I took courses in the traditional art of silver. Back from school, I took an apprenticeship with a silversmith in a village where they specialized in jewelry. Today I work together with local silversmiths to promote Bali's beauty in our own way. We make different kinds of jewelry, mostly with sterling silver, in both traditional and modern styles."

"Right now I need to build up my inventory and prepare for the holiday season. God will bless you with all your kindness. Thank you."
