Kenari's story

Kenari creates handcrafted silver jewelry with semi-precious gemstones. She'd like to buy silver and gemstones in bulk to obtain the best possible price.

Kenari has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is her story:

"I come from Celuk, famous for its gold and silversmiths, so I learned to design and craft jewelry from a very young age," says Kenari. "In 2003, I married an artist from Gianyar and went to live with his family, as Balinese tradition dictates. However, I was obsessed with crafting jewelry and, fortunately, my husband understood."

"My family and I would like to send our gratitude to all of you who support me with this micro credit. I hope to continue developing my workshop. Thank you so much for helping me. God bless you."
