Kadek Wijanegara celebrates the verdant wonder that is his homeland of Bali with these adorable leaf-shaped drop earrings. As the artisan says, he loves using, "...the beauty of Balinese tradition and nature – like dance, carvings, beaches and landscapes." The sterling silver earrings' openwork design is further enhanced with a combination of shimmering and oxidized finishes. Butterfly clasps secure the post earrings.
Kadek Wijanegara has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2800 and the most recent for $3000. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of raw materials such as sterling silver and gemstones to increase production.
