"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.

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.

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

"Thick silver well made chain"

This chain is quite thick and a bit heavy. It is nice on its own or with a substantial pendant.

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love Sarjanas work and I bought a neckless from his Borobudur Collection 11.I adore all the beautiful necklesss he has made , I have many of them which have matched Pendents I have brought. This neckless is for the pendent that matches the Earrings made by ( Buana) everything I buy on Novica is of Heirloom Quaility! there is something wrong with your computer systen. I spent over2.5 hours to fill in the 2 last Review. It didnt work and I will call you tomorrow, July13 2021. This has happened 3 times now and I am very dissapointed in the Sites problems

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.
