This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
Celuk is a Balinese silversmithing center and it is there that Asmana, while still in elementary school, began to learn the art of jewelry making. His father was a well-known silversmith who taught him bon, jawan and other jewelry techniques that have been handed from generation to generation in Celuk. Now in his sixties, Asmana has taught this art to many others and is dedicated to seeing it passed to the next generation.

"Okay not Great"
Window on Heaven ring is somewhat attractive, not absolutely terrific. The stone in the ring I received is darker. The size of the ring is good, not too small and not too large to be over powering. I bought this ring to coordinate with a square shaped, turquoise pendant necklace.
