Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Wardika comes from a village that specializes in bone carving, a traditional Balinese art that has been passed from generation to generation. When he was eighteen, he began to work as a bone carver and determined that he would become a master carver. Every day, he carefully studied and copied the techniques of the best carvers until he became their equal. Today, he earns a living and proudly supports his family with the sales of his unique carvings. He is able to give work to others in his community and hopes to teach this art to the next generation.

Wardika began working at the age of eight, first painting and then carving exquisite images in bone. He sat for days on end to do his work and, as a result, has developed health problems. About two years, ago he began to have trouble with his spinal nerve. He was only able to stand or walk for minutes at a time and this left him unable to work. Therapy and natural healing have eased the condition but he has developed a phobia about soft mattresses. He will only sleep on very hard mattresses as he is afraid of becoming paralyzed and permanently disabled. He draws strength from his family, works at therapy and struggles to return to normal while fighting an ongoing battle with his phobia.

Wardika was a street vendor with an unpredictable income until he joined Novica and shoppers discovered his unique work. Now his Novica sales provide a stable income and he is able to employ artisan assistants to help produce his jewelry.

Made Wardika has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $4000.

Wardika and his family and his four assistants and their families are dependent upon the steady income that Novica provides.

Made provides for his three children and is deeply attentive to teaching them respect for the elders and the natural world.

This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.

Made Wardika provides for the education of his children.

"Beautiful and Delicate"

The picture doesn't do them justice; they are exquisite. Am planning to wear them on my 68th birthday trip to Greece! The garnet is a nice touch, as that's my birthstone! Wore them 2 days and got 5 compliments!

"Beautiful!"

I love moon earrings and these are a great addition to my collection. The carved bone is a unique touch that, to my eye, adds to the illusion of having serene moon faces dangle from my ears. Bone is a great moon color and a beautiful contrast to the garnet and the silver filigree around the edges. Love them.

"My favorite earrings!"

I fell in love with these little crescent moons the first time I saw them. They are exquisitely made, very light and comfortable to wear. I wore them for the first time yesterday to work, and people were amazed at the quality and beauty! When I told them they were under $35.00, they were astounded. I told all of them about your site, so I hope you get lots of new business. I am so delighted with these, they are beyond wonderful! Thank you so much. <3 <3 <3

"Beautiful Carving"

I have no idea how the carving was so beautifully accomplished , such detail and to perfection. The garnets are my birthstone, and these garnets have fire and are so beautiful . The beading in the silver is gorgeous. The artisan who made these is truly a master of his craft.

"Love the artistry- poor wire quality"

I love the earrings and also purchased the necklace. I am very disappointed in the quality of the wire that goes through my ear- it is very thin. It bent when I used an earring guard so that I wouldn?t lose it. I never had that happen with a pair of earring I bought. Very disappointed in that- I can?t imagine getting many wears before it breaks.
