Tiberio's story

Tiberio is an artisan from Peru who specializes in silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to invest in the purchase of fine silver and restore normal operations in his workshop.

Tiberio has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is his story.

Tiberio was offered a job cutting gemstones by mere chance. "Thanks to my teacher, I learned the craft. I love the gems of Peru with all their beautiful colors. I combine them with silver; this is how each of my creations is born. I try to use these natural elements in different and unusual ways, with the authenticity of Peru inherent in my style. My inspiration comes from the stones themselves."

"Let me thank you in advance for your support. It is gratifying to know that we are not alone in the midst of the current situation. Many times we ask ourselves if we will all overcome this stage, if our families will be well. But then NOVICA and Kiva appear, reminding us that we are not alone, and they extend their hand to us. It has raised my energies and faith in the future. Today is the time to reinvent ourselves. With your support we will acquire funds, and I will call my assistants once the quarantine is finished to get down to work. Meanwhile, I am working on new designs."
