This hand crafted crocodile wood jewelry box is in the shape of a beautiful and stylish woman's face. Artisan Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya hand paints jungle fronds and colorful parrots to frame the face painted on the lid. The box opens to reveal a black velvet-lined interior compartment.
This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $1000. Proceeds were used to invest in wood and additional labor for production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Gusti now has artisan assistants who help with the hand-painting of his designs. Each of these assistants works from home.
