"We'd like the whole world to visit Peru, and, of course, to enjoy our favorite handicrafts."
Born in Lima on November 23, 1976, Margarita studied anthropology and art at the university while also taking courses in photography and cooking. Since 2002, she has crafted Christmas decorations with the help of her mother, Martha Chiurliza de Gonzáles. The creative pair uses traditional materials in innovative ways, combining ribbons and fabrics with miniature people, beads and tiny straw baskets.
"We wanted to make something pretty, and I wanted to be able to stay at home with my baby, Lorenzo," Margarita confides. And this satisfies both her creative needs and her role as the mother of a busy toddler. She and Martha both look after the boy and both design their ornaments.
"Everything we make uses Peruvian materials that few people take advantage of. We think they are just wonderful," the women say. "We'd like the whole world to visit Peru, and, of course, to enjoy our favorite handicrafts."
The mother-daughter team provides job opportunites for other women who can also stay at home and take care of their children.
I am very pleased with the Mate gourd ornaments, 'Christmas Owls' (set of 6) which I ordered from Margarita and Martha. They arrived in perfect condition in a lovely box. I plan to give these ornaments as a gift and I know that our friends will enjoy their whimsical characters.
I received my set of Mate Gourd Ornaments (Christmas Owls) from Margarita and Martha yesterday, and I am *delighted* with them! The owls are whimsical, cheery and beautifully made, and they make me happy every time I look at them. I was so pleased to be able to give them to various family members as special mementos of this Christmas. Thanks Margarita and Martha. Next time, I'm keeping a couple for myself!

I received my beautiful set of ornaments from Novica today. They are so pretty and I can hardly wait for Christmas so I can put them on my Christmas tree. The work on them is very well done. I look out for more by them.
I ordered the little set of owls. They came wrapped as a gift. My parents have a small cabin out in the woods and these owls are going to be a Christmas gift to them. Thank you for the care you took to make these adorable owls. Tammy San Antonio, TX
I am so pleased with my flute players Christmas ornaments! They are so colorful and wonderfully made! I plan to order more items in the future.
I purchased the ornaments, ""Andean Houses,"" for my daughter for Christmas. She was delighted with them, as was I. I think I'll be buying more from Margarita and Martha!
