The sterling silver Y necklace is punctuated with beads of onyx and garnet as well as cultured freshwater pearls in creamy white and iridescent purple-gray.

"Beautiful but flawed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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 wasnt protruding. The piece is quite lovely, nice and delicate.

"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.

This is a nice pendant. I took it off the black string and put it on my own necklace. Very nice work from this artist.

"Stunning! Gorgeous! Large!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

WOW! I was SO excited to see this in person! I had ordered a bracelet from Dewi that was Amethyst and garnet and needed or wanted something to match as the bracelet from her also had a carved face. I do believe they match. The pendant was way bigger than I imagined, as I thought it would be close design to the bracelet from Dewi but WOW Buana did his Beauty on this piece! I do have to say I think they go together quite well. It is a Large piece and the silversmith work is top quality! I ordered express mail and it came VERY FAST from Bali. I absolutely love all my pieces from Bali/Java I cant afford a lot of things that dont involve living expenses due to the corona virus but these purchases have been well worth the patience and money. LOVE Novica!

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.
