"I'm inspired by the things I see around me, by situations and experiences and by my feelings. In all my work, I try to share a memory of mine using Peruvian silver and gemstones."

"I'm proactive, kind and have a great artistic sensitivity. I was born in Lima in 1975. "My life hasn't been easy at... "I'm proactive, kind and have a great artistic sensitivity. I was born in Lima in 1975.

"My life hasn't been easy at all. In fact, life was complicated during the period of terrorism and civil war that devastated Peru. I felt like I had no future. For me, this was a very dark time with few opportunities for young people like me.

"At times like that, you need to keep a cool head and lay out the goals you hope to achieve. That's what I did and, little by little, I was able to overcome the difficulties.

"My plans and my future are based on my past. I hope to finish the degree in art and design that I started in 2013. I can say it's almost a dream come true. Then I hope to apply everything I've learned in handicrafts and, especially, jewelry where I hope for greater growth.

"In addition to jewelry, I'm interested in the handicrafts I loved when I was a teen. This was reinforced in my youth when I met a master artisan who lived nearby and I asked him to make a piece of jewelry for me. It didn't come out the way I'd requested and he made it over three times. I still didn't like the results — not for the technique but for the design. Finally, he asked me, 'Why don't you make it?'

"And that's when my story in the world of jewelry began.

"When I crafted my first designs, I knew this was what I wanted to do. I wanted to design and develop jewelry. This art lets me express the images in my mind and in my heart. It gives me the freedom to work with such a malleable material. Shaping it and achieving the designs I want is most gratifying.

"When I first began, I studied with Teofilo Salazar from Cajamarca, but then I enrolled in a school in Callao where I learned basic jewelry. As soon as I finished, I was asked to teach a summer course there. It was so well-accepted, I taught it for two years.

"Then I retired because I'd rather create jewelry and be able to develop my own designs. This is my true passion.

"To become a master jeweler, I had to learn more. The basics weren't enough so I began to look for workshops so I could increase my skills. I found that studying is very different from learning in an actual workshop. I worked in some seven jewelry studios in a lapse of five years, alternating with filling small orders I was taking. These years helped me so much! I learned many different techniques and increased my speed. I still apply these techniques.

"I especially like how easy Andean silver is to work with and that I can create my designs in a material everyone can use.

"The trickiest part is soldering the silver, but the entire crafting process requires a lot of attention to create a design that brings joy to its wearer.

"I'm inspired by the things I see around me, by situations and experiences and by my feelings. In all my work, I try to share a memory of mine using Peruvian silver and gemstones."

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
