Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Sarjana has steadily grown his workshop. He is eager to continue growing and hopes to be able to employ additional silversmiths in the near future.

Sarjana has a diverse jewelry collection that incorporates both traditional and contemporary motifs. He learned silversmithing from his uncle, and sought out Javanese silversmiths to teach him the specialized art of traditional Indonesian handmade chains - a speciality that has been handed down through the generations. Sarjana is dedicated to preserving Indonesian silverwork and hopes to some day teach his children this art.

Wayan Sarjana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1350 and the most recent for $6000. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of sterling silver for production.

Novica sales account for nearly 100 percent of Sarjana's workshop income. This income supports his family and the families of his five assistants.

Sarjana educated his oldest child and now provides for the education of his youngest daughter.

Sarjana gives work to other silversmiths, two of whom specialize in the jawa technique.

Sarjana's two children were born 15 years apart. He provides for both of them.

"Perfect For a Man or Woman"

Wonderful craftsmanship. This chain is intricate and beautiful but has a lot of weight to it. It will look great with my other chains and enhancers or can be worn alone.

"Well Made, Quality Product and a Fair Price"

Overall this is a terrific, well made, sturdy and very attractive necklace. I have had a lot of use out of it. It is beautiful alone as well as stands up well to an enhancer. Really really nice piece.

"solid craftsmanship + excellent design"

based on this quality of this piece, i will likely buy more from this artist. the diameter is small (which is clearly indicated in the description) but it's a very dense "braid". I looked at it with a 10x loupe and using that i could see that the chain is constructed by "hook-and-loop" stitching of two different diameters of silver wire (one diameter per strand). The amount of skill and effort required to build a single necklace is obviously substantial. I look forward to wearing it
