Nyoman's story

Nyoman is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of gemstones and silver for production. Nyoman has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story:

Nyoman recalls, "I began learning to carve wood when I was in elementary school. My grandfather, an architect of traditional Balinese buildings and also a senior carver, was very supportive of me. Then my father introduced me to a leading silversmith in my village, and I began to learn from him.I want to prepare a new collection and build up my inventory so that this year can be good for me and my silversmiths. We always work hard and try to provide the best quality for our customers. Thanks to all of you who support my business continuously. I really appreciate it."
