I was born in a Balinese village where the silver work is well-known to be the finest. I am the first born of two children. My parents were also silver craftsmen who wanted me to be an independent person, so they really taught me well to be strong. And the result of their teaching was that I could pay for my own school fees from my silver work. Since then, I rarely asked my parents to support my finances.

As a village boy, my childhood was really fun. I loved going fishing with my friends in my neighborhood. Even today, fishing is one of the hobbies that I really enjoy. My education was ordinary, like that of other children, but my high school was a bit more interesting since I went to a vocational high school and learned about modern design. At the age of 16, I started to be serious in this field.

"At first, I was forced to learn about silver crafts, but then I found something that really drew me into silver crafting. My grandfather was the one who taught me. He was one of the elders in my village and also one of the most skillful silver craftsmen. Yet, he was not my only teacher, as I also learned from my parents-in-law. I met my wife when we were both learning about silver.

"Now I am married and we are blessed with two sons. Being a father is really amazing for me — many things have changed since I became a father. The old me was selfish and thought only about myself, but now my children are always in my thoughts. I am always thinking about how to prepare for their studies, provide for their needs and also prepare for their future.

"Thank God I'm a silver artisan in Bali, because the materials are easy to find here — from the silver, copper, and gold to the tools such as scissors, tongs and hammers. I have three part-time workers who help make all the designs that I create with my wife. I usually work with her to create beautiful designs. And mostly the inspiration comes from surrounding things."

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.
