Komang Widiana from Indonesia
Balinese artisan Komang Widiana says, 'My village is well known for the type of jewelry we design and create in gold and silver. As a child, my parents taught me how to make rings, necklaces, pendants, and earrings and, after graduation, I was encouraged by my father to create my own designs. My work was well accepted and I continued to attend every year. I am proud to say I have won several awards for the originality and quality of my work, including one presented by the Governor of Bali.'
