In the past, the dwellers of Celuk Village were mostly farmers. Rumors have it that there were only three families who belonged to the caste of Pande that pioneered this industry. This caste is well-known for their specialty in manipulating all kinds of metals to create accessories for Hindu's prayers. As tourism was becoming main commodity in Bali, more and more villagers left their farm behind and began to learn to craft silver and gold. Specifically, in 1976, almost all of the villagers had become silver smiths and Celuk Village has been popular with its beautiful jewelry and other silver handicrafts since then. The silver craftsmen here have been passed down from generation to generation, so it really fits very well if they are called by the name of Bali's Silver Village. Even though as a silver craftsman village, there is no silver mine in this Celuk village, most of the raw materials are imported from outside the island in Indonesia. Silver craftsmen in Celuk village have really good skills, where the silver carvings they make are really stunning and will make your eyes really amazed because it's so beautiful

What to Do in Celuk Village

On ether side of the road are established many art shops showcasing their finest works inside a glass display case. You can take a closer look at them to appreciate it and buy some if you really like it. Most vendors and smiths usually accept custom made jewelries but you can always ask them to make sure. Most of them are used to dealing with foreign tourists so their English should be fair enough to promote a conversation. If you’re confident enough, you may ask their permission to forge and shape your own jewelries. Some of them might allow you, even guide you how to use the tools properly. Be careful, though, because molding silvers and golds involves fire and fire can burn your fingers pretty badly, not to say your money as well. See around the village by visiting one of the art shop here and see their process making traditional gold and silver art, and see their collection of silver jewelry and you can buy if you really interest with the jewelry.
