"For me, my art is a fusion of fantasy and reality."
"It was through jewelry that I met my husband, who returned from the U.S. where he had worked as a jeweler. He taught me so much, and is still by my side, helping me perfect my work and giving me his total support.
"When I was a little girl, I liked to draw, and today I have a lot of fun designing and creating jewelry. I think it awoke the latent child artist in me. I find a great deal of satisfaction in my work as I strive to transmit freshness in my designs, and craft them with the highest quality. For me, my art is a fusion of fantasy and reality.
"I'm Carmen Rosa Gamio Alvarez and I was born in Lima on May 23, 1974. After high school, I studied fashion design, and then spent two years in the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes del Peru, majoring in fine art.
"My artistic name is Zilhi, in honor of our daughter. My husband, Adrian Miranda Riojas, is also a Novica-featured artist. While living in the U.S. for many years, he worked with a number of Hindu people and learned a great deal about their culture and traditions. When we learned we were expecting a girl, we made a list of Hindu and African American names, and chose Najma Zilhi, which means 'Star.' This is now the artistic name for both of us, as our art is also born from our union.
"Motherhood is greatest challenge in life and my greatest satisfaction. In my career, I find competing with many other designers a challenge.
"I'd like to tell Novica shoppers that my designs are crafted entirely by hand with rigorously selected materials. I bring this wonderful art to you with much love. Please enjoy it!"
Dear Zilhi-I ordered your ring ""Andean Road""and received it today.I am very pleased with it-I love the simplicity of the intertwined silver wires and the delicate beads.I love tourmalines-pink and green are also my favorite colors.I very much like the other items of your design shown on Novica,and hope to get more.You seem to see the world as I wish I could!Thank you and best wishes-Peggy from Colorado.
Completely outstanding and flawless beauty. Thank You
Thank you so much for the lovely cocktail ring. It was lovely and great value. I have received so many complements. Muchas gracias!!!
Dear zilhi, I received my Tumi today, and I'm absolutey delighted by it. The design had me hooked the first time I saw it but I wasn't sure about the size -it turned out te be, by lack of a better word, perfect! I'll be wearing it for many years to come. Getting this Tumi is, to be honest, an important ritual for me in getting over a tough breakup. It will be replacing the one I had been wearing for close to 18 years before I had it melted and made into a ring for her. I was really missing it. The old one may be gone, but from now on this one will be collecting the energy of my thoughts, pains, laughters, defeats and victories of my life. Thank you, Pepijn from The Netherlands.
I purchased a silver sodalite necklace for my mother this month for her birthday and she absolutely loved it! Thank you so much.
