Details

Crafted in a traditional, lovely heart-shaped design, this necklace is the perfect way to wear your emotions on your sleeve, or at least around your neck. Made Wardika handcrafts the exquisite setting from sterling silver in an intricate Balinese motif of tendrils and granules. A faceted amethyst crowns the pendant, while cultured pearls beads dance delicately beneath. However, the main attraction on this necklace is the prominent black heart carved from bone. When illustrated as a symbol of love, hearts are most notably depicted in red but, as black is the combination of all colors, we like to think this heart signifies a love as deep as the night is dark.

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

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 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.

"Beautiful item"

This handcrafted necklace is beautifully done and delivered on time, and as promised. I would not hesitate to order again from Novica or the National Geographic sites. The literature and thank you card from the artist makes this a special gift.
