Nancy's story

Nancy is an artisan from Peru who specializes in sterling silver filigree jewelry. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver.

Nancy has been selling through Novica since 2015. This is her story:

"I'm Nancy and I was born in Peru's Paucara district in 1987. I grew up in an environment surrounded by nature and it was a beautiful place with very diverse flora and fauna. Thanks to this, most of my jewelry designs are inspired by nature. As a young girl, I was always interested in creative and artistic works. I signed up for a jewelry workshop, then another and another. In each one, I learned new techniques and how to create the different alloys with Andean silver — 950, 925 sterling, and others.

I love looking at a completed piece of filigree jewelry. Seeing the beautiful and incredible results of my work motivates me to create even more designs. Peru's silver filigree jewelry is a part of my history, my culture, and my life. My designs reflect the natural world and the traditions of my country.

I appreciate your support through this loan, which I will use to buy pure silver and create a new batch of items to supplement my current product offerings."
