"We love to let our imagination run free and be as creative as we want to be, knowing that beautiful things always come out from such a precious metal as silver."
"I am Juan Luis, and Fabiana Sebastiana is my older sister. We were born in the Puno region of Peru. I used to work at a company's workshop, but times were hard and management had to lay off many people, myself included. Thinking about what to do next and earn a living, I realized that I had skills and had learned many technical aspects of working in a silversmith's workshop. However I knew nothing about the details and finish of a piece. That's when my sister offered to help. I think that being a woman, Fabiana Sebastiana is more tuned-in to the finer details of a jewelry item. We decided to join our different talents to design and craft original jewelry of high quality.
"To us, jewelry design and crafting is an art, and we love the idea of people wearing what we make. We love to let our imagination run free and be as creative as we want to be, knowing that beautiful things always come out from such a precious metal as silver.
"We get inspired by everything we see, even by the discarded pieces from other things we made! I put them together and play with them, like a jigsaw puzzle, which leads me to new designs. I love to see how mistakes can be transformed into beautiful things.
"Our designs are intended to transmit our enjoyment of this art form, which we've been doing for more than ten years. I would describe our work as classic, with a strong contemporary influence."
I really love the owl pendant I received yesterday. The work is beautiful! It's a unique piece of jewelry with delicate detail. And there's a story to tell when I wear it! Thank you.

Having a daughter that is very hard to buy for, I went to the Novica web site and started searching for a necklace. I picked one made by the Quispe family. When it arrived I was surprised to see it was already gift wrapped. The wrapping was even unique with a teeny doll on top, I couldn't have been more pleased. When we opened our presents at Christmas, for once my daughter was truly excited over her gift. The necklace was very nice including the pretty silver chain. Thank-you Quispe Family! Good work!
I received my Vicuna earrings today, and am so happy with them! The attention to detail in the packing was a treat in itself. The earrings are gorgeous! If possible, they are more beautiful than the picture of them on the website and they are truly well made. Thank you so much. I am very lucky to have these! Morgen

I purchased Floral Orbit...what a beautiful necklace! The pendant is very well crafted, and is the perfect size for me! Plus, it looks great with my sodalite earrings!
I just opened my necklace, Inca Goblet! How delicate and beautiful it is! The Crysocalla is such a beautiful color and the silver work displays it nicely.
I ordered the "Black Maxim" necklace and am somewhat disappointed. The way the "beads" are attached, the necklace is wavy and does not site properly when worn. It's off kilter, but considering the hassle and expense to return this items is not worth it. I will take this as an expensive learning experience and be more savy in the future.
I bought the jade Mystic Spear earrings for my sister's birthday. She loves them, they are absolutely beautiful and well worth the price!
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful ring...it was perfect and just as described. The booklet and postcard added a wonderful touch as well. Truly a treasure. Wishing you all the best, Tania
I just received my Mate Gourd Cross Necklace - 'Dove Cross'. I am honestly speechless as to the beauty of this piece. I knew it would be nice, but I am so pleasantly surprised by it. I could not be happier with the piece or with the process. I'm sure I will return again and again to Novica for the quality and uniqueness of the products. Thank you so much for this beautiful necklace!
Mate gourd cocktail ring, 'Lovebirds' I bought this ring because it is very unusual. The workmanship is great. I plan to buy more of the mate gourd jewelry.
