Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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 began working at the age of eight, first painting and then carving exquisite images in bone. He sat for days on end to do his work and, as a result, has developed health problems. About two years, ago he began to have trouble with his spinal nerve. He was only able to stand or walk for minutes at a time and this left him unable to work. Therapy and natural healing have eased the condition but he has developed a phobia about soft mattresses. He will only sleep on very hard mattresses as he is afraid of becoming paralyzed and permanently disabled. He draws strength from his family, works at therapy and struggles to return to normal while fighting an ongoing battle with his phobia.

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.

Wardika provides for his three children and is deeply attentive to teaching them respect for the elders and the natural world.

Wardika and his family and his four assistants and their families are dependent upon the steady income that Novica provides.

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

Made Wardika provides for the education of his children.

"A Beautifully Handcrafted Gift"

The pendant itself is beautiful and gorgeous to see and the leather cord that holds it is adjustable. The pedant is a gift for my girlfriend and she loved it a lot. The pendant also came with a postcard from from Mr. Made Wardika. My girlfriend and I would like to personally extend my thanks to Mr. Made Wardika for such a wonderfully made pendant.
