Ken Dedes, the consort of the first king of Java, was known for her extraordinary beauty, and today inspires this design by Buana.

"These are exquisite"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These are beautiful. They are so exquisitely crafted and they are the perfect size- not too large or too small. Theyre just right. I love them and i know theyll be one of my go to sets of earrings. They look even better on than they do in the picture. Amazing.

"Beautiful workmanship"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The workmanship on this bracelet is very accomplished. Ive studied jewelry making. And tho my efforts will never be as good, I know enough to recognize how very skilled Buana is. I bought this as a Graduation present for my niece, and once the big day comes am eager to give it to her. Am also certain that shell treasure it.

"Twin Sister is now a Cousin Bracelet!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Twin Sister bracelet is beautiful, with excellent craftsmanship. When I saw the two faces on the bracelet I thought of the closeness between myself and favorite cousin. I bought one for each of us. So now its a Cousin Bracelet, as well as a Twin Sister bracelet. I wear mine for special occasions, and both my Cousin and I keep the bracelet on our desks as a reminders of one another. And the plain band allows for a size adjustment. I have a small wrist, and a local jeweler cut off the ends (and smoothed them) to make the bracelet so that now it fits well. Thank you, Buana!!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"When I began to work with Novica I started with nothing, I could barely support my family. Today I have a growing workshop, and a number of silversmiths work with me."

Buana is a master silversmith. He designs and crafts his jewelry collection using a combination of traditional and modern jewelry making techniques. Buana and his silversmiths share their knowledge and train younger artisans that join the workshop.

Buana has received 14 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2400 and the most recent for $7000. Proceeds were used to invest in a purchase of natural gemstones and silver for his jewelry.

When Buana first began to work, he was fearful that he would be unable to care for his first child. Now he proudly cares for two.

Buana provides for the education of his two children.
