“My inspiration is my Peruvian culture. There is an enigmatic sense to everything in Peruvian art, and as I grasp that magic, I connect and blend my contemporary designs and lifestyle with our ancient culture. I design pieces using different cultural elements that are reflected in colors, textures, mysterious quality powers such as Peruvian seeds known as Huayruros that are said to have magical powers, symbolizing good luck, protection against negative energy, happiness and and fertility. As an artist, I tell the world about our fascinating culture through my jewelry designs. My artistic pieces can be worn anytime during the day or evening making them very versatile. I create a pendant that can also be used as a brooch, or a necklace that has a detachable pendant, or a necklace of adjustable length, giving my customers flexibility to suit the changing moods and contexts of modern life.”
