I was born in 1995 in a Balinese town where most of the people work with silver. Workshops abound, as do shops selling our beautiful silver art.<br><br>I'm single, and like travel and adventure.<br><br>I'm the older of two children and my father is Komang Suartra, another featured artisan. I want to continue my father's silver artistry, but I have a different concept and themes in my designs. They tend to depict the floral and animal motifs that I love and want to preserve.<br><br>My father began teaching me when I was in sixth grade. I began with the repousse technique for embossing silver. A year later, I began making jewelry to sell to my classmates. I continued doing this until I graduated from the university, and now I'm setting up my own silver workshop.<br><br>Indonesia is rich in flora and fauna species and these inspire my designs. I want to preserve their existence and also want to introduce them to others. <br><br>I work with the help of three silversmiths who help me to craft my designs. In addition to sterling silver, I use cultured pearls, carved bone and gemstones, and work with semi-traditional tools, including a stove and polishing machine, solders, tongs and more.
