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.

"Very delicate "

Much smaller than I expected. I thought the medallion would be bigger. In fact I thought the entire necklace would be a bit more sturdy. However, it is delicate, pretty and goes nicely with a V neck T shirt or sweater.

"Beautiful but flawed"

The spring clamp is too small for the jump ring it needs to connect to. Really need to jam it in there, which is difficult to do behind your head. I can replace the clamp, no problem. A lobster claw would be the better choice. A piece of the chain has already snagged on clothing, so I had to rework it so the wire end wasn't protruding. The piece is quite lovely, nice and delicate.

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.
