Details

Buana crafts an enchanting amulet necklace, combining cultured pearl and gleaming silver. It frames a portrait of Barong, meticulously carved by hand in bone. Also known as Bhoma, he represents the goodness that destroyed the evil Rangda. His adventures are reenacted in the form of a dance and his image is also hung on doors in Bali to ward off evil spirits.

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.

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.
