Jose Antonio's story
Jose Antonio is an artisan who specializes in sterling silver jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including leather and silver. Jose Antonio has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story: "I've worked with silver jewelry since 2009. At first, I saw it as an opportunity, and learned the crafting techniques. But as time passed, I realized it was more than this, that designing is a way to express art through jewelry. Silver jewelry, and especially filigree, has a special attraction for each person. I feel proud of my work." "I'd like to thank everyone for their support through this microcredit. It will really help me with the purchase of the raw materials that I need to push my business forward." Use the link below to view Jose Antonio's sterling silver jewelry on the NOVICA site:
