Celuk is a Balinese silversmithing center and it is there that Asmana, while still in elementary school, began to learn the art of jewelry making. His father was a well-known silversmith who taught him bon, jawan and other jewelry techniques that have been handed from generation to generation in Celuk. Now in his sixties, Asmana has taught this art to many others and is dedicated to seeing it passed to the next generation.
Wayan Asmana has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $3000.
Asmana and his workers rely on the stable income that Novica sales bring. These sales are their primary source of income.
This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
"Never take it off"
Gorgeous bracelet! I ordered one for a gift and liked it so much when I received it that I ordered another one for myself. It is heavy but delicate with a lovely design using leaves and ropes. I had intended to use this piece as one of my "dress" bracelets but I enjoy it so much that I wear it all the time even with jeans!
