Having learned how to make jewelry from a very young age, Kadek Wijanegara is skilled at creating a pleasing aesthetic balance in his pieces. These dangle earrings are no exception, with snow-white cultured pearls that are complemented by settings of textured sterling silver. Rope motifs embellish the bezels, while floral motifs enhance the upper segments of the earrings. The earrings dangle from sterling silver hooks.
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.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
