Komang Widiana from Indonesia
is the artisan in the spotlight this week
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.'
