Kenari's story

Kenari is a Balinese artisan who specializes in silver jewelry. She has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. She would like to invest in more sterling silver to create new jewelry designs. 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. In 2003, I married an artist from Gianyar and went to live with his family, like Balinese tradition dictates. However, I obsessed with crafting jewelry and fortunately, my husband understood." "I am so grateful for the chance to get a micro-credit loan. This will help me to create more stock and also to prepare new designs. I am so thankful for all your support, and hopefully, you would like to collect the jewelry I make. It would also be wonderful if you'd recommend my jewelry to your friends and families. It will mean so much when my designs are known and worn by lovely people everywhere in the world. Thank you so much for your help in making my work sustainable."
