Henry's jewelry collections for men are influenced by his Indonesian surroundings, as well as by his admiration of Japanese artistry.
Born in Jakarta, Henry's adventurous spirit found reflection in the wide variety of jobs he's had: from waiting tables in Perth, Tokyo, Amsterdam and Rotterdam, to designing chairs for a furniture company.
His artistic spirit found reflection in jewelry design, and Bali became the perfect setting. "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, where I could pursue my dreams and create my own collections," recalls Henry.
"Designing jewelry for men has become an intrinsic part of my lifestyle," Henry tells us. "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 in designing men's silver jewelry," says Henry with a smile.

I had ordered the ""Freedom"" bracelet once before, and I cannot find it after moving, so I am ordering it again. It is gorgeous and the quality is outstanding.
Wow Henry, my ""Hawk Power' ring just arrived. I am blown away by how beautiful it is! Thank you so much for this beautifully crafted, unique piece. My Hawk exceeds all my expectations and it feels powerful and precious. Keep up the amazing work, you are a true artisan.
I had to write a few words about my Smiling Buddha (Buddha Head Pendant) by Henry A. Sanny. It's absolutely very well made and has some heft to it. There are no open jump rings on the pendant to get caught on sweaters or skin or to stretch open, and the detailing goes 360-degrees around the Buddah's head from his smiling face to the curling details of his hair/headdress. The chain that came with it is the perfect compliment to the Smiling Buddha and it's well made too. I'm sure the SMILING BUDDHA looks great on either genders (I'm a guy, btw) and I've got many compliments on it when I wear it out.

Henry, The Lion Ring is spectacular! I knew it would be quite a sizable piece of jewelry to wear, but from the moment I saw it, I loved it.. I've not seen a more tasteful and satisfying Lion head portrayal on google in the market place. Thanks so much for your unique styling! I wish you much success in 2015! Steve

Henry, Your expertly crafted Sterling Silver Wrap Ring, 'Dolphin Embrace' is beautiful and very comfortable. I adore all creatures great and small. The dolphin is certainly a unique and wonderful mammal lovingly portrayed in your amazing and whimsical work of art. Thank you for making me smile. Warm regards, Annette (Melbourne, Australia)
I love the silver spinning ring with elephants I purchased a while back and wear it all the time. Even my dad who is an antique jewelry dealer thinks it is cool and hasn't seen many spinning rings. Thanks! Hint to others: Just put graphite in a crack of a spinning ring to reduce friction and really spin. Fun!

I received my Dragon Spirit ring yesterday and I am very happy with it! The ring is hefty, fits my finger perfectly and the insets evoking dragon's scales are really beautiful! Thank you! Massimo
Just recieved the bracelets 'Forward Vision' , and 'Freedom"" crafted by Henry Anthony Sanny. They are fantastic. Both are great designs, with tremendous attention to detail, and fit perfectly. Thanks Henry!
Henry...I was blown away by the beauty of the bracelets I chose. The quality is incredible and the beauty speaks for itself. You are a master craftsman and I already have several more bracelets saved to my wish list
I recently bought the ""pulse"" leather bracelet for my partner and he loves it!! The only inconvenient is that everytime the bracelet isn't pulled strait, it bends, getting the lock loose and the bracelet falls open. My partner had to stop wearing the bracelet, which is too bad as we both love it, and I'm now struggling to find a jeweller who can fix the problem. That said, the bracelet is of really good quality and looks amazing, and we received it really fast!!
Henry, I purchased the men's ""Labyrinths"" ring for my husband for Christmas. I can't wait to give it to him. The workmanship and details are of fine quality. The Labyrinths is perfect to illustrate the many paths that we may choose from in life. Thank You!
Lovely item! I had received it within one week of purchase which is fab. I had ordered a leather bracelet; unfortunately the string that holds the leather shut so the clasp could fit through it had come lose within one day. I do not think that this is down to craftmanship but down to a design flaw. I will take it to my local beadstore and see if I can find a solution. It is a lovely product none the less and I would purchase from this artist in the future.
Hello, I am a senior citizen living in Georgia in the United States. I accidentally came across your web page.....(Novica) while searching for men's rings in silver. I have purchased ""Peace Maker"" in a size 11. I received it today (6-8-12) and I am so very impressed and pleased with this ring. It is quality and totally unique....I love it very much. It compliments another ring I wear on my other ring finger. I hope to find more unique items at this site in the future. Thank you very much for such a beautiful ring. I don't know what else to say except that it's amazing. Regards, Larry

It is beautifully made and cannot wait to give it to him. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering again soon. Also the gift box it came in unique and very lovely.
