To leave Bali, is one of her hefty burden. Cultural differences certainly glance at. But all modernity offered by the Capital doesn’t make her endearment to Indonesian culture turn gray. What’s considered as outmoded by young generation today, she considered it as splendor. Batik is one of Indonesia cultural heritage that she likes best. In fact, her visits aboard for competition doesn’t always mesmerize her. She, herself prefers to visit Java compare to overseas and she eager to explore further traditional buildings around Indonesia. Massive development in Indonesia nowadays, really concerned her. Most Indonesians themselves aren’t showing proud to their nation. Its pitiful she said, when other of her foreign friends out there really passionate to know more about Indonesia. As a woman Kania holds this principle that every woman should be able to accomplish more in their life, acknowledge their achievement, and believe that they can be whatever they wanted to be. Because for Kania herself, everything in this world is possible.

Adopted from Indonesian folklore of Keong Emas, this new collection combines silver and gold into a fascinating art of jewelry that not only reflects outer beauty but exudes beauty from within. And when Kania stepped into Sunaka Jewelry gallery, her eyes catch on Gajah Sumatera collection. Small subeng lead her choice, in the end she ended up with the whole collection.
