"Perfect!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I opened this package and my seven year old immediately said, It looks like a snake. This chain is gorgeous, substantial, and a piece of art all on its own. I LOVE it. When you want a chain to be enough all by itself then you need this necklace.

Overall this is a terrific, well made, sturdy and very attractive necklace. I have had a lot of use out of it. It is beautiful alone as well as stands up well to an enhancer. Really really nice piece.

"Perfect For a Man or Woman"

Wonderful craftsmanship. This chain is intricate and beautiful but has a lot of weight to it. It will look great with my other chains and enhancers or can be worn alone.

"Skin and Snake Necklace"

Very clean and smooth. The craftsmanship is superb. The only thing is that I probably wont be able to use my pendants with it.

"solid craftsmanship + excellent design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

based on this quality of this piece, i will likely buy more from this artist. the diameter is small (which is clearly indicated in the description) but its a very dense braid. I looked at it with a 10x loupe and using that i could see that the chain is constructed by hook-and-loop stitching of two different diameters of silver wire (one diameter per strand). The amount of skill and effort required to build a single necklace is obviously substantial. I look forward to wearing it

"Beautiful Bracelet!"

This is a beautiful bracelet that looks like a work of art. I also love that it is not tight on my wrist but hangs loosely. I will wear this a lot.

"Even more impressive in real life!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I had to treat myself when I saw this organic pairing of tigers eye and sterling silver. The necklace is so beautiful, even more than the photos show. It is solid but not heavy, and the quality is excellent all the way to the wire wrapped links.

"Super quality, tailored,"

Very well made. I got the matching ring. Looks like a nautical piece, but can be worn with jeans or a little black dress.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Sarjana has steadily grown his workshop. He is eager to continue growing and hopes to be able to employ additional silversmiths in the near future.

Sarjana has a diverse jewelry collection that incorporates both traditional and contemporary motifs. He learned silversmithing from his uncle, and sought out Javanese silversmiths to teach him the specialized art of traditional Indonesian handmade chains - a speciality that has been handed down through the generations. Sarjana is dedicated to preserving Indonesian silverwork and hopes to some day teach his children this art.

Wayan Sarjana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1350 and the most recent for $6000. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of sterling silver for production.

Novica sales account for nearly 100 percent of Sarjana's workshop income. This income supports his family and the families of his five assistants.

Sarjana educated his oldest child and now provides for the education of his youngest daughter.

Sarjana gives work to other silversmiths, two of whom specialize in the jawa technique.

Sarjana's two children were born 15 years apart. He provides for both of them.
