Indonesia's Ketut Sulastri began crafting jewelry at a young age, watching others work in order to improve her techniques. She designs this pendant necklace and handcrafts it using glass beads on a red nylon cord. Pink stones of rose quartz hang from this piece, alongside a sterling silver charm with a flower stamp and a red tassel.

Ketut Sulastri's jewelry incorporates traditional Balinese jewelry designs and contemporary trends. She happily teaches silversmithing to her assistants, and others interested in learning the art, but finds that many younger artisans are more interested in braiding, macrame and non-traditional techniques.
Ketut Sulastri began to work with silver at the age of eight. Her family was poor and they needed the money for food. She also used her income from silversmithing to pay her school fees. Today she has her own workshop and is very happy to provide work for other women in her community.
Ketut Sulastri's Novica sales account for over 50% of her income. They not only bring stability to her workshop, but they enable her to employ assistants and give work to other women in her community.
Sulastri does not have children of her own but she provides for the care of her nieces and nephews.
This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
"Trend Right and so pretty!"
This was a gift for a special friend and it just "made" her outfit look polished and trend-right when she put it on. The little beads and tassel are so cute and bright. I can give this as a gift to any age and I know they'll love it. I'm buying a few for myself too. Thank you Ketut Selastri.
