Francisco's story

Francisco is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of silver and gemstones. Francisco has been selling through NOVICA since 2004.

This is his story: "I am the second generation of jewelers and now my daughters have also chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much, using different motifs from our own culture. I sign my work as 'Citlali', meaning 'star' in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company."

"We are honored and grateful for the support. With the pandemic our sales channels decreased, and this help will allow us to give new life to our workshop."
