“Sentimental Souvenir”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Overall it was a worthwhile experience. You pick out the design and make the marks on the silver. The staff does the soldering, buffing, etc. The best part is walking away with a unique experience and personalized momento of the time spend in Ubud! A heads-up, his website says 350,000 rupiah, but it was 400,000. Also, if you don't want to get charged extra for using more material, make sure you ask before starting to make your creation! We ended up spending about $10usd more than we were anticipating.

“Artistic - not me - BUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

A great way to spend a few hours making something unique and personal to take home. Would highly recommend to everyone (even if you think you are not artistic) Plenty of assistance with choice of design.

“Awesome Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Wayan Sunarta, welcomed us into his home and offered us a great morning. We made Rings, earrings and necklaces. Sunarta and his staff were extremely helpful the whole time. Coffee was fantastic, awesome and spectacular!!!!!!!!! The product we "created" was professionally finished and of high quality. The experience was one we won't soon forget! And one we would be willing to repeat.

Thanks Wayan for the great day:)

“Such an awesome morning activity!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

my husband and I had read about this class and considered taking it but weren't 100% sure. During an afternoon stroll through Ubud, we stumbled upon a jewelry shop that had several items in the window that caught my eye. We went in and began looking around. We started talking to the woman behind the counter and she mentioned a class. We were getting information when the owner came down to chime in. It just happened to be Chez Monique! After talking with him we knew we definitely wanted to take the class! We took a shuttle into the center of town the next am where he picked us up and drove us to his studio, which also happened to be his home. It was an amazing experience because we got to go into one of the villages and meet many people, including his wife & apprentice. It was such a cultural unique experience. We designed our own pieces and with his help finished them in only a few hours! We would definitely recommend this class to anyone coming to Ubud looking for a one of a kind experience!

“Awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Sunarta and his staff are really friendly, patient, and helpful. An awesome experience designing and making your own silver jewelry to keep. A fun way to spend an afternoon! You leave with a sense of appreciation for hand-made jewelry.
