Over four carats of beautiful faceted amethyst gemstones sparkle in this lovely pair of dangle earrings presented by Komang Wijayana of Bali. He works with local artisans who craft each earring by hand from sterling silver with two round amethyst stones shimmering from bezel settings. An oxidization technique is used to enhance the swirling motifs seen on the sides of the earrings, accentuating their feminine allure.
Komang Wijayana has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to develop new jewelry designs and make improvements to his workshop.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
