Yan Fredy's story

Yan Fredy is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handcrafted silver and gemstone jewelry. He would like to purchase silver for his jewelry designs as well as some new tools for his workshop. Yan Fredy has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story: "My father designs and crafts jewelry, and he taught me to love the art of silver. I always loved being in his workshop with him. The old designs, with their infinite forms, icons and the techniques used by our ancestors… these are very interesting and special, due to our country's history and what this means for us Peruvians. The new designs have the versatility and perfect craftsmanship of a piece of jewelry. We must always seek innovation." A message from Yan Fredy: "I'm grateful for your collaboration in this wonderful opportunity you're giving me. In this way, I can increase my production and be ready for the holiday sales. My thanks to each and every one of you."
