"To be a master in this craft, I try to never give up and believe I am an artist, so whatever I make is a piece of art with great value. My wife helps me. We are a great couple in the world."
"I was born in Bali on December 15, 1980. My parents are silversmiths.
"They taught me to work with discipline and to do it seriously, with full responsibility. This lesson helped form my character, and I will teach my children the same things.
"I became interested in this craft when I realized that sketching my own designs and giving them character was really important. At first, it felt like a heavy responsibility, but then I got hooked on design. I have to keep sketching to pull the ideas out of my head, and it's a lot of fun.
"The best teacher I have is my father. He was a tough teacher because he always believed in my ability and my capability. That means a lot to me.
"My best friend describes me as a religious guy, a hard worker, and a perfectionist. Sometimes my desire for perfection makes it difficult to have a lot of friends.
"I find endless inspiration in our great natural panorama and the living creatures that surround us in Bali — animals like frogs and swans, plant life such as trees and bamboo. The traditional art motifs of Bali are also a great inspiration as I blend them with modern design.
"I work with silver, gold, gemstones and pearls, and make them into precious jewelry. The character of my design is totally different than that of other jewelry in my town. I give soul to my designs, therefore they have great character and look nice on everyone who wears them. It's challenging to sit down with clients to hear what they want and then transform their ideas into jewelry.
"I'm married and we've been blessed with two lovely children. I will give them the best education possible and will not push them to follow what I do for a living. Rather, I will let them choose their own path with joy and happiness.
"It wasn't easy for me to leave home and my big family to start out on my own, but they all supported me in the decision. My best friend and my best assistant both supported me, too. Because I'm the third generation of a silver crafting family, I took a lot of skills with me to my own workshop.
"For the first three years, I designed for one client and he was a huge help to me. So it was another big step when I decided to work on my own, to stand on my own two feet. I wasn't sure I'd be successful and I made many plans with my lovely wife in case my workshop was a failure. Finally, I found the bright way.
"Just like other Balinese people, I hope that our culture and tradition will live on through us. Ours is a simple way of life where we wake up in the morning and have time to play, to talk to our neighbor, perform ceremonies in the traditional way by helping each other. It's a simple way of live that doesn't involve money too much.
"To be a master in this craft, I try to never give up and believe I am an artist, so whatever I make is a piece of art with great value. My wife helps me. We are a great couple in the world."
I just rec'd my Sun Splendor ring. the golden brown quartz is a nice warm 'mellow' colour and the citrine stones are very vibrant. It's really beautiful. I like the square shape on my finger. The detail and quality is superb. The shipping time was pretty quick, a couple weeks, which is typical. The sizing is right on, fits good and is comfortable. I love it !!! Thankyou Kadek for a lovely piece you are very talented !

I just received my ring today (sun splendor) it is the most beautiful ring ever. The craftsmanship and the design is extraordinary. I am a forever customer. Thank you
I just received my Dancing Swan amethyst ring, and I think it is the most fabulous bit of artwork I have ever seen. Although I have more expensive pieces of jewelry in my collection. the intricacy of the beautiful design, the careful craftsmanship, and the comfortable feel of the ring on my hand make this my absolute favorite piece of jewelry. If Mr Hendra ever decides to make a similar ring with peacocks and blue and/or green stones, I'm his first customer!

I purchased the Blue topaz stacking rings, 'Tree Frog' (set of 3). WOW - so detailed and so beautiful!! I love this ring set and wear them all the time. Thank you!
I rec'd my Amethyst Swan ring the other day. it was on Backorder but came alot sooner than expected. Usually I'm not that fond of Amethyst when I see it in pictures but wearing the ring and looking at it, it's really pretty and sparkly. The ring is made well and is very comfortable to wear. I'm very happy with it. Workmanship is superb !!! Thankyou Kadek and Novica!
The tropical frog ring is so beautiful and unique. Ive never seen anything like it. The detail and craftsmanship is excellent. thank you

Kadek Hendra, Does excuisite work, my ring was beyond beautiful. His craftsmanship is outstanding..... I would highly reccomend anything that Kadek makes. Kadek Thank you so much for your gifting the world with your beautiful Jewelry, J. Dean
I was very happy to receive the ring, the setting is especially beautiful,so pecise delicate and I wanted to spend ages just looking at it. The colour of the stone has a nuetral effect that enhances the setting, I feel very drawn to the Balinese designs and for me Kadek Hendra made a perfect ring, thankyou.
I purchased the fleur-de-lis ring several weeks ago. It is beautiful, and detail is amazing. It is my favorite piece of jewelry.
I purchased the ""tropical frog"" earrings and ring from Kadek Hendra and they are absolutely exquisite. The craftsmanship is superb-Thank you for such beautiful works of art.
The Sun Splendor Quartz and Citrine ring is beautifully crafted. It fits perfectly and feels so comfortable on my finger. I received it all the way from Bali in less than two weeks, wonderfully packaged. Even the ring box was a little work of art. The ring also came with a special card from the artist. Thank you so much for making this very special piece and others like it available at such affordable prices. This won't be my last purchase.
The Amethyst cuff bracelet is even better looking in person than it is in the pictures. My wife will love it.
I received the Tropical Frog ring in the mail today, it's amazing! Looks just like on the photo here and even better. The main prasiolite stone is of good quality, clear and without defects. The detail and the work on the ring is amazing! Very pleased with this purchase and definitely will purchase more from Kadek. Such an original and beautiful ring.
I purchased the ""Tropical Frog"" Cocktail ring from Kadek Hendra. The ring is fantastic! The detail work is exceptional, the tiny frogs realistic. I think the value for price is very good. I look forward to owning more pieces from this amazing artist! Thank you for sharing your art with us all.
Mr. Hendra, Though from your picture, youth smiles out, it is from the illuminating beauty of a very lovely old soul, and yes, you are indeed becoming the master you seek to become. This morning it became my honor to hold one of your creations in my hand--your ""Purity cross."" Words fail me. I could only deeply sigh, ""Beautifully done!"" The wonder of seeing, let alone possessing, something we in the Western world see more rarely every day--an object so infused with the spirit in which it was created that it speaks directly to my heart--so from my heart to yours--many thanks and a sincere hope for you and yours-- long, productive and joyous lives. Until next time-- Debbie Kooy
I received my ring today (Verdant Haven) and it is absolutely beautiful. The design and the quality of workmanship is exceptional. Than you Kadek, to you and your wife, for sharing your artistic talents. I am extremely happy with my purchase. G. Gatlin Holiday, Florida
Kadek, you truly are an artisan. I received my Precious Lotus ring today and I am overwhelmed! Your skill is unsurpassed. I have never seen such beautiful work. The ring is breathtaking. I can't stop looking at it. I was concerned (looking at the photos), that the leaves on the side of the shank might interfere with my fingers, but the whole ring is smooth and yet delicate and intricate. It is the perfect size and has a gorgeous undergallery, which makes it all the more comfortable to wear. I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am. This will become my ""signature"" ring. It's so unique and eye-catching. Thank you so much.
I really like the blue topaz & peridot choker ""Treasure of Waturenggong"". It's very beautiful!!
Your 'Tropical Crocodile' bracelet is very unique! I am always looking for jewelry that is different and extraordinary that you don't see everyone wearing! Purchased this one for my husband, and it really fits what I am seeking A different, bolder, heavier bracelet that looks marvelous on his wrist!
Dear Kadek, I bought ""Blue topaz stacking rings, 'Tree Frog'... It is really beautiful and very very original!... so I had never seen and purchased. I really like your creations and definitely will buy more in the future... See you soon, Thank you, Caterina

You truely are an artist. And a most gifted silversmith. My ring, the Sun Splendor is simply beautiful. It looks great on my hand and feels as if was meant just for me. Thank you for making my life happier with your talent. Marie
Thank you for very beautiful Pura Lotus necklace! You are 5* artist! Fast shipping! Good communication! Good luck! Irina Kosel
Kadek Hendra, thank you, you have delighted me again! My 'Mahameru' cultured pearl and blue topaz domed ring is just exquisite and it makes me feel regal to wear it. For three days now I find myself staring into it still in wonder. I keep finding new details in it to marvel at, like the fact that the underside is completely finished in the wonderful detail of openworked silver. So, while Novica's description is, of course, accurate, it cannot possibly do true justice to the reality of your beautiful work that you so faithfully, and, as I'm finding with each new piece, characteristically execute. As large as the ring is, it wears so comfortably well and seems very much as if it was ""made just for me."" Thank you again, and my best to you and your family,--Deb K.
Beautiful design! impressive :)
I am fortunate to have been able to collect five of this artist's rings over time. Every one is unique and different but they all reflect Kadek's special talent and artistry. I feel very lucky to have such beautiful jewelry. Kadek has a true gift and thank goodness he is sharing it with the world.
LADYSMITH, KWAZULU-NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA
I firstly want to compliment you on your immense talent and beautifully crafted piece. I purchased a pair of Sterling Silver Half Hoop Earrings, 'Royal Bali', for my mum for her birthday. I was so impressed by the efficient and speedy delivery. I placed the order on 05-03-2014 and received the package on 10-03-2014. My mum is going to love her earrings!! They are a stunningly exquisite pair with such attention to detail. I must express my sincere appreciation to you Kadek and Novica for making it possible for someone like me all the way from South Africa to be able to make this purchase. I read in the attached card, that your wife assists you. God bless you both abundantly with many years of love and marital bliss and may God guide your talent and inspire you to continue designing and making beautiful pieces of jewellery....Lots of love and best wishes always, Aarthi :)
HELLO KADEK, I WAS LOOKING FOR A NON TRADITIONAL STYLE WEDDING RING. I DID NOT WANT A ""WEDDING BAND"" I WANTED SOMETHING MEANINGFUL AND DIFFERENT, I FOUND IT WITH YOUR "" GARDEN OF THE CROSS"" RING. I JUST LOVE THE MEDIEVAL STYLE . WONDERFUL CRAFTSMANSHIP"" I WISH YOU CONTINUED SUCCESS"" M. WILK
Hello Kadek, I wanted to let you know that I received your Precious Lotus ring today and I love it! It fits well, and is just as beautiful as it showed on the website. I will probably be buying another piece from you in the future. Thank you for a beautiful ring that I know I will be wearing often! I would really be interested in an all silver pendant made with the same little frogs that you have on your tropical ring and earrings. If you ever do make one, I would love to be notified if possible.
I just received the Night Temple ring created by Kadek Hendra. It literally took my breath away, I absolutely love it. I can't wait to show it off and tell everyone where I got it. What an amazing artist! Very lovely work, I will definitely be purchasing more pieces.
HELLO KADEK! MY NAME IS CARRIE AND I LIVE IN THE USA, CALIFORNIA. I LOVE YOUR WORK BECAUSE I LOVE RINGS. YOU MAKE BEAUTIFUL RINGS AND THAT IS WHAT MADE ME PURCHASE THE ""DANCING SWAN"" RING. IT IS SO SPECIAL, AND I GET SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ON IT FROM OTHER PEOPLE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
HI AGAIN...I FORGOT TO MENTION I ALSO HAVE YOUR ""TREE FROG"" RINGS (SET OF 3). I REALLY LOVE THEM AND WEAR THEM ALL THE TIME.
Thank you so much! I absolutely love my Tropical Frog ring! It is beautiful!!! I wish you made a matching pendant.
Hello! I just received my blue topaz Tree Frogs stacking rings and the set is just beautiful. Such exquisite details. I love it. I've looked at your other work and the items are simply gorgeous. You are truly a gifted artist. I will be ordering more of your beautiful jewelry in the future. Thanks to you and your wife.
Thank you....thank you....thank you, Kadek!! I just received my domed Moon Flower Cocktail Ring, and couldn't be more pleased. The workmanship and ""attention to detail"" is outstanding. Your dedication to your craft is apparent from first glance....you are to be commended!
I ordered the Sealife ring. I wish there had been a picture of it on a hand to give some perspective. It's a bit thicker than I thought but I do love it! I ordered a size up since the band seemed wide (again~ perspective). I love the detail around the stone and though I wish it were a bit darker in color (it sometimes looks clear) I overall love it! It's not a ring I will see on anyone else in my area of the world so I love having a unique piece. It's a bold ring and even though I have smallish hands it still looks nice.
Wow, I've just received my 3stacking rings with the blue topaz and tree frog design. The beauty of this gift is amazing and I am so pleased with it.Will definitely purchase other gifts for my friends and family now
Absolutely gorgeous. The ring catches the light and sparkles better than Edward Cullen. Intricately crafted and details are exceptional. Already browsing for my next order from this artist
I purchased the Taman Ayun Light Hand Crafted Sterling Silver and Amethyst Bracelet. It is stunning. This is true artistry and I will be purchasing more items form this artist.
I received the Dragon's Heart garnet earrings yesterday and I could not be more thrilled. The carving is exquisite and the earrings balance beautifully on the ear. My only suggestion would be to use a larger butterfly back, the one the earrings came with is a bit small for the weight of the earring. Otherwise, perfection! Thank you. (One other suggestion--some necklaces come with only 20"" chains. Perhaps a choice of 16"" or 18"" could be made at the time of purchase, or as a custom order? )
Dear Mr. Hendra .. Thank you so much for your beautiful unique artistic items, I wear them all the day long and look at them and sending my blessing . Wish you all the prosperous life you desire :) Dula GA , USA
I just received my moonlight earrings. They are a true piece of art. Thank you
The first order I placed with Novica.com was for a garnet ring made by Kadek Hendra. The ring I received is truly beautiful and very comfortable to wear all the time. The garnet center stone is sparkly and a fiery orange-red color. The workmanship is absolutely beautiful and truly a work of art. I am so pleased with this ring that I purchased another two rings from the same artist: one to give as a gift and another ring with blue topaz. I would like to extend my thanks to Kadek Hendra for creating such lovely and unique designs. Novica.com provides a great service to artisans around the world to sell their unique handiwork to markets across the globe. I recommend this website and the artist, Kadek Hendra.
Casper, Wyoming, USA
Surprised by the size of 'Hapsari' - a little like a lady's vintage timepiece, and in jewelry translation, relatively as big, in the best possible way ! A good companion to Kadek Hendra's mabe pearl 'Ice Flowers' - set in lacy, double crowns ;)
I purchased the swan cocktail ring with blue topaz for myself. It is beautifully made and lovely to wear. I have received many compliments and directed friends to the Novica website, and the artistry of Kadek Hendra, as a result. Thank you for opening the world of talented artists from remote countries to consumers who love handcrafted items but cannot travel to exotic markets to purchase them in person. With appreciation, Gael Stuart Phaneuf
I just received my order (Blue topaz stacking rings, 'Tree Frog' ) and I must say that it is absolutely gorgeous! It looks even nicer in person, and I can't stop looking at it! Thank you Kadek!!
