Crafted of Balinese crocodile wood, this exquisite jewelry box is painted by hand. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya lines the petite jewelry box in luxurious black velvet.
In addition to supporting his three children, Gusti also cares for a foster child.
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.
Gusti pays for the education of his three children and his foster child.
"Incredible detailed art"
Purchased this box for a friend and she couldn't get over the amount of detail in the artwork! She LOVED it!
