Artisan Organization: Yuniati
Country: Bali and Java
Yuniati is a Balinese woman who married a silversmith from Celuk, which is known for its legacy of gold and silver jewelry. Little by little, I learned how to make silver jewelry from my husband, she recalls. The first things I learned how to design were necklaces and bracelets. Unbelievably to me, some foreign customers loved them! This encouraged me to keep developing more designs with support from my husband and some the silversmiths we knew.
My designs are inspired by the shape of plants and animals, and most especially, by Balinese art and culture.
I was interested in working with you right from the first time I heard about your mission of helping artists and artisans promote and sell their items worldwide. I hope I can grow with your help."
