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.

"One of my favorite silver rings to wear!"

I LOVE sterling silver jewelry, and I have a fairly big collection. I purchased this ring around the holiday season of last year, and it was more beautiful than I imagined. The pictures are nice, but the ring is truly beautiful. Fine craftsmanship, and top quality silver... it's a ring that I wear the most frequent.

"beautiful workmanship"

This ring is much more then I had expected. The stone is beautiful and the carving and weight of the ring is quite substantial. It's a very comfortable ring especially because it is a bit wider then most but fits comfortably.

"This ring is stunning!"

I love this ring it is beautiful. I have bought several rings from this area and most of them have been running small. So, I ordered a size up, it's a bit big, so, don't size up on this ring it is perfect regular fit. Love it! It looks so much better in person than it does in the picture!

"A real keeper!"

This ring just arrived today, and I already love it. It's much more beautiful than the picture shows. I usually take a size 10 in rings, but this is a little snug. If I had to do it again, I'd go with an 11. In spite of that, it's a real keeper. Anxious to wear it when I go out this weekend.

"Beautiful ring, statement piece but comfortable "

Truly beautiful statement ring. Larger than I was thinking, but it's tapered in the back so it's very comfortable. Very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this as a present, or for yourself!

"Purple Karma"

I bought the amethyst ring last year and since then I've worn it almost every day, it's my staple piece and I love it. I remembered first looking at it and thinking how on earth was it so cheap, it was brilliant, my amethyst wasn't a deep purple but a beautiful violet color which makes it so much more special and unique to me

"Beautiful Ring - runs small"

This ring is stunning, heavy, well detailed with a lovely stone. I found, however, that the sizing is off. I ordered two rings from Novica one an 8 and this one in a 9 - they are the exact same size so unfortunately this is too tight :( .

"Blown Away!!!"

I don't think I can really do this piece justice in words, but I will try. First the ring is true to size, and it fits perfectly, it almost feels like it was custom made for me haha. The stone is beautiful, the design is intricate and lovely, and the metal is very nicely polished. I am honestly surprised that it wasn't more expensive. I love this piece so much and whoever designed/crafted this has a great eye. Amazing!!!

"Purple Karma Ring"

Nice ring but does not look like ring in picture, in the picture it looks like it has black inlay but it doesn't so I was very disappointed with that, that was one of the reasons I bought it. Other than its a nice ring with nice detail on the sides but no black in it.

"Beautiful, but the sizing runs small."

This is a beautifully made ring, but I had to return it because the sizing runs so small. I have large hands, so there really wasn't an option for getting a larger size, but if your hands are an average woman's size, I recommend a size larger because it really is gorgeous.

I love Novica and Buana exemplifies the ideal Novica artist. His style, attention to detail, imagination and artistry are both exotic and appealing. I haven't acquired a singe item from him that I don't love and I plan to continue augmenting my wife's collection with his items for years to come.

Unique pendant. Smaller than I thought. I wish the face had been clamped instead of glued to base. Chain is sturdy and a good length. Amethyst is very small. Difficult to see.

Buana has a wonderful talent for working with bone. The faces he creates are so expressive and are combined with all the other elements beautifully. I love my 'Sleepy Moon' necklace.
