I was born in Bali in 1989, the second of two children. In my village, many of the villagers work as bone carvers. My father works as a driver in Bali. Like other children in my village, I went to school and graduated from senior high school.

After high school, I married my husband. He is a great bone carver. He introduced me to the art of carving. After learning the technique and practicing a lot, I started making jewelry from bone. At first, I made earrings and hair pins. Later, I made necklaces and bracelets. We use other materials as well, including water buffalo horn and wood.

My husband and I are happy and we are blessed with three children. Being a parent is a great feeling for me. Raising children is a lot of hard work, but there is also a lot of joy. Many things have changed. I learned how to be more patient and responsible. I also train myself to be a better person so I can be an example for my kids.

Being a mother means not having much time to enjoy myself, but I can still do my simple hobbies. I love gardening and reading because I don't have to spend money or time away from my family to enjoy them.

Although my life now seems happy, there were times when I felt low and even dead inside. The time my mother passed away was really shocking and made me sad. Also, when my youngest child was sick, she had a fever and convulsions until she fainted. Those moments really made me sad. Thank God, my children are now all healthy and happy.

Sometimes life isn't easy and, when going through hard times, we need to keep telling ourselves that we can do it. I have words that always get me through: 'Do the best, as hard as you can, and results will follow.' When I made my first earrings, I tried to make a great pair. I used the best material, pictured the design, then combined it with gemstones to make it even prettier.

I am inspired mostly by nature and the culture that surrounds me, and am helped by four artisans. I create my design first and they copy what I make. The materials I use are not hard to get in Bali, and the equipment I use isn't complicated. I use saws, grinders, polishing machines, etc.

I met you through friends who were already featured artisans. I hope to introduce my jewelry and increase my sales so that I can provide good meals, good education, and good healthcare for my family.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
