is the artisan in the spotlight this week

Artisan Yuli

"My name is Made Yuliawati, born near Celuk village, which has been known throughout the world for hand-crafted silver and gold.

"When I was little, I never thought that one day I would be working with silver. My mother is a silversmith. After finishing her housework -- like cooking, cleaning the house and making offerings -- she spent the rest of the day working with silver. It was she who taught me the art. Over one year, I learned to handle silver and I enjoy the work. I was really excited to put tiny silver pieces together and create new designs.

"Silver work did not keep me from studying, and by making silver jewelry I could pay my tuition. In 1998, I married a man who is also a silversmith. His educational background in interior design and mine in economic management have made us not only husband and wife, but also working partners."
