Henry's story

Henry is an Indonesian artisan who specializes in sterling silver and leather jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and leather for his designs.

Henry has been selling through NOVICA since 2009. This is his story:

"I used to live in Jakarta, but it was difficult to find jewelry that was specifically designed for men. So I decided to leave the hustle and bustle of Jakarta and move to Bali in 2002. There, I could pursue my dreams and create my own collections. Designing jewelry for men has become an intrinsic part of my lifestyle. In my designs I'm often funky and chunky and I like to mix different materials such as sterling silver, leather and bone. My goals in life are to raise my three kids, be a good partner for the artisans that work with me, and keep focused on designing men's silver jewelry.

"Many thanks for this interest-free microcredit. It is a helpful boost, and I sincerely appreciate it. To me it means that I can continue working, and I'll enjoy presenting my new collections to all of you!"
