Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"When I began to work with Novica I started with nothing, I could barely support my family. Today I have a growing workshop, and a number of silversmiths work with me."

Buana is a master silversmith. He designs and crafts his jewelry collection using a combination of traditional and modern jewelry making techniques. Buana and his silversmiths share their knowledge and train younger artisans that join the workshop.

Buana has received 14 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2400 and the most recent for $7000. Proceeds were used to invest in a purchase of natural gemstones and silver for his jewelry.

When Buana first began to work, he was fearful that he would be unable to care for his first child. Now he proudly cares for two.

Buana provides for the education of his two children.

"Gorgeous but a touch too small."

The design and craftsmanship are wonderful. The pendant could have been a bit bigger for full effect.

"Beautiful Cow Bone Carving"

This is a beautiful and delicate carving. Its historical in that it is a carving of the Queen of Sumatra of Indonesia, a country in great danger from Climate Change. I love it and my grandchildren love to say her name and always remark on her beauty.

I love Novica and Buana exemplifies the ideal Novica artist. His style, attention to detail, imagination and artistry are both exotic and appealing. I haven't acquired a singe item from him that I don't love and I plan to continue augmenting my wife's collection with his items for years to come.

Linda

Unique pendant. Smaller than I thought. I wish the face had been clamped instead of glued to base. Chain is sturdy and a good length. Amethyst is very small. Difficult to see.

Buana has a wonderful talent for working with bone. The faces he creates are so expressive and are combined with all the other elements beautifully. I love my 'Sleepy Moon' necklace.
