Dewa's story

Dewa is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in handcrafted sterling silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones. Dewa has been selling through NOVICA since 2017. This is his story:

"I'm Dewa, and I was born in Bali to a family of educators and traditional artists. My wife and I work hard together to create our unique jewelry pieces. While growing up, my family drew me to Balinese culture. My grandfather was a dancer, painter and sculptor who introduced me to the wonderful art of designing."

"We use silver, copper, and gemstones, which are difficult to work with. It takes great artistic and technical skills to make jewelry that people will love and cherish. My jewelry is special because of its unique designs. They are a beautiful and harmonious combination of traditional patterns and symbols with modern, elegant shapes."

"I would like to say thank you very much to all of those who support me through this microcredit program. Past loans have been very helpful in developing my business. I will use these funds to buy raw materials and create new designs.
