Juan's story

Juan is a Peruvian artisan who designs and crafts jewelry that features Andean silver and gemstones. He would like to buy materials such as silver and gemstones in order to increase production. Juan has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story: "My wife Rosario and I once ran a clothing shop, but financial hardship struck. We were both interested in designing jewelry, and at first we relied on expert silversmiths," he said. "I was fascinated with the process of making jewelry and became an eager student – I now design and craft my own jewelry. My style is different than my wife's, and we are both proud to see how far we have come. I'm driven by a desire to excel, and I strive to transmit beauty and quality. My jewelry comes from my inspiration to bring out a woman's natural beauty. Thanks to you, I've been able to be a part of this great endeavor. I appreciate your assistance with this microcredit."
