Artisan Information

Made Wardika

Shop all Made Wardika products

My name is Made Wardika and I was born and raised in Tampaksiring, Bali. My family's small house is surrounded by farms and fields with beautiful scenery.

I'm the second of three children and, due to my family's economic situation, I started working when I was 11 years old to pay for school. While I was in junior high, I became a wood carver and kept practicing that craft until I finished high school. After graduating, I painted and decorated carved wood pieces. Then I learned to carve horn, bone and wood.

At 25, I got married and had two sons and a daughter. Being a father isn't easy and we've gone through many happy and sad moments. We went through a difficult time when my daughter fell ill and had to be hospitalized while my wife was pregnant with our third child. I prayed to God and believed he had a wonderful plan for us.

Being responsible for my small family has encouraged me to work harder. I decided to work with you in the hopes that this would help expand my workshop and help my children go to school and and help me provide for their daily needs. My wife and a few family members have helped me in this project. We create jewelry like rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces from materials like horn, bone, beads and wood. We only use traditional tools like scissors, hammers, knives and chisels. My village also has artisans who make jewelry, but I design unique pieces that are inspired by Bali's art, culture and traditions.

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.
