Giuliana's story

Giuliana is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handmade filigree jewelry. She would like to invest in the purchase of sterling silver for her designs. Giuliana has been selling through NOVICA since 2005. This is her story: "As a child, I loved creating my own jewelry to wear at parties, or to give as gifts to friends. My designs speak of tradition yet are modern, and they feature the harmony between metal, pearls and gemstones. I'd like to show the world the handcrafted filigree styles developed in Peru over the centuries. I have researched the theme at length and my findings have led me to experiment with many great materials. Andean opal is my favorite." "I am really grateful to everyone who is assisting us, as this micro-credit will help us keep developing this art, which is our passion and our lifestyle. The effort that we dedicate to each and every piece of jewelry is rewarded when you choose it."
