Generating an energy all their own, these earrings from Bali's Komang Wijayana are handcrafted of sterling silver. Intriguing contrasts between polished and oxidized finishes create depth and drama. Like the heart of the sky itself, cool blue topaz gems totaling two carats center the earrings.
Komang Wijayana has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $400 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to develop new jewelry designs and make improvements to his workshop.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
