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 in 1983 to a family of educators and traditional artists. My wife and I work hard together to create our unique jewelry pieces. We don't have children yet, but I hope that one day our work will inspire them to follow in our footsteps and preserve this precious tradition. 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 express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has helped me through this loan. I will use the funds to build up my business by creating new designs and increasing my productivity."
