East Java area was known as the central power of ancient Majapahit Kingdom, the biggest Kingdom in Indonesia in 13-15 century. The prosperity and wealthiness of Majapahit Kingdom raises many goldsmiths and silversmiths to supply the need of the palace and the increased number of trade in and outside Majapahit Kingdom.
Since a jeweller needs a special skill and knowledge, they are honored by the Kingdom and the society. Silversmiths taught their knowledge of making jewelry from generations to generations. Time after time, as the modernity touch the world, the traditional silversmiths profession become faded, along with their image and wealthiness.The common society can only see that traditional silversmithing as a rough work and only gain small income.Therefore the young generations hesitate to learn silversmithing.
