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 silver for his designs. He 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 would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this micro-credit for their support. It is comforting to know that our art is both valued and appreciated."
