Celuk Village is formerly as a traditional Balinese village located in the entrance gate of Gianyar Regency ad has changed into a tourist attraction with its trademark in the form of gold and silver.
The gold and silver items crafted here are of high quality and feature unique and elaborate designs as the craftsmen are known for their skills and their industriousness. Almost all of the households in the village are homes to jeweller families and each Celuk villager possesses artistic skills in developing and executing intricate designs and varying patterns. The gold and silver items they produce include souvenirs and mass export items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, studs, broaches and many other Balinese ceremonial accessories and adornments. As a tourism destination, Celuk welcomes visitors by the day who come to see the elaborate designing and production processes up close and witness a work of art in the making. Also, produce can be purchased directly here. Many of the households act as galleries, showcasing items in their front houses through glass displays and others are viewable in their workshops. Heading eastward along the Jalan Raya Celuk thoroughfare, immediately visible are the rows of galleries and art shops dealing with gold and silver. Several spots also feature items other than jewellery such as uniquely designed silverware; elephant motif spoons, floral design-rich forks, plates and trays and more is for sale here.
The many rows of art shops welcome not only prospective buyers, but also visitors who are merely interested in their design and production processes. Finished products are displayed in 360-degree viewing glass cases, enabling visitors to inspect the designs from all angles. Should you wish to inspect an item even closer, you may ask the gallery or shopkeeper to take them out for you, and they will be happy to explain the process of production and other interesting details behind the items.
