Now in his sixties, Asmana has taught this art to many others and is dedicated to seeing it passed to the next generation.

"I Might Never Take This Off!"
I had difficulty deciding which of Mr. Asmana's bracelets to purchase, since he has so many attractive designs. I was on the hunt for a unique, heavy, well-fitting sterling silver bracelet, and this one exceeded all of my expectations. I am 6 ft. tall, 180 lbs., but have a 7 in. wrist. All previous men's bracelets I have owned or tried on in stores have felt uncomfortably long. I hate how they fall over my hand. This 7.75 in. bracelet is the perfect fit, and I am thrilled with how comfortable and attractive it is. The craftsmanship is exceptional. It not only looks beautiful and solid, but it feels very sturdy. I have no doubt it will last a lifetime (or several). Novica customer service was very helpful when I reached out for sizing advice. The shipping speed also exceeded my expectations. I ordered it on Monday and it arrived on Thursday. Thank you, Mr. Asmana, for your superb design. And thank you, Novica, for sharing his art with the world!
