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 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.

Made Wardika has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $4000.

"Beautiful, detailed carving"

Wonderful dragon with detailed carving. Tea-colored dye makes the intricacies of the carving stand out clearly. Enjoyable to wear. Im sure it will get many compliments. Leather cord can be resized to different lengths.

There are two things you can give your children, one is roots, the other, wings. both my sons chose the dragon as their talismen, and these are for them. they are exceptionally pleased with the beauty and workmanship of these dragons. i couldnt be more pleased with this artists work.
