"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.

"Exquisite craftsmanship!"

Being new to Novica I ordered with caution, but I will not hesitate to order again! The pendant is exquisite! I appreciate the attention to detail. "Moon Romancing" has a nice solid weight and the carving is securely set into a bezel with no room for play. This is one of those items that will take continuous wear (which I am guilty of doing) in stride. The chain is beautiful with soldered links: even the clasp is soldered to prevent stretching and breakage. Buana your pendant is flawless and I will most certainly be a repeat customer. Thank You!

"Such a lovely necklace!"

I couldn't believe the "serene and peaceful" expression Buana carved into the faces of this necklace! I love everything about it. The silver setting is beautiful too. It takes amazing talent to carve such realistic expression. Awesome when you see the real thing! I actually bought another for my daughter!

"Love It!"

The moon faces are so expressive and the silver work is finely detailed and beautifully finished. Truly a piece of art and even better than pictured. This will definitely be a treasured favourite. Order process and shipping was flawless.

"This is nice"

I like the necklace a lot. However, the back is open, and I wish it had been finished out somehow so that the back wasn't hollowed out. I think that takes away from the beauty of this necklace. If it accidentally gets turned around when you are wearing it, it looks strange and unfinished.

"Sterling silver Moon/Sun pendant"

The carving and the bail on this are wonderfully done. Hard to believe it is not plastic, the work is so smooth. The chain is a great longer length, at 19 inches. There should be a side photo so the base's design can be seen (it does not look like the bail, are very simple sqiggles).

"Lovely but it keeps breaking"

This is a lovely necklace -- the carving of the faces is very precise. However, the insert keeps falling out of the necklace. I've put it away until I can figure out how to fix it because right now I'm worried about losing the face.

Scotty Z

Tempe, Arizona

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.

Redhead at Heart

Kansas City, MO, USA

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.
