Born in Lima, Fermín Vilcapoma honors his family's legacy with his talented work as a jewelry designer. Fermín has been fascinated by gemstones from a young age. He marks his beginnings as a silversmith to age eleven, when, after school, he'd help his father at the family's workshop.

"I used to go to school in the morning, but I was always daydreaming, creating new designs," Fermín recalls. "After school, I'd rush to my father's workshop to help him or to practice creating my own designs. Jewelry has been all I ever wanted to do, so I saw no point in going to university. I was able to dedicate more time to the workshop when I graduated from high school. We were able to attract more customers then, and the family's business began to increase steadily.

"My designs are inspired by everything I see around me, by the beauty of gems, and by our ancestors' jewelry. I enjoy the creative part most. I love to design, and I am always happy to listen to our customer's opinions and suggestions. I am eager to see what Novica's clients think of my jewelry!"

"Beautiful"

Small enough for professional wear but unique enough to announce I care about style. Beautiful stone in center of hand formed earrings.

"Modern looking silver flower pearl earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My mom loved these silver flower pearl earrings because the silver flowers are not flimsy but substantial and the flower design is more modern looking. She said they remind her of a expensive Tous jewelry brand design from Barcelona, her hometown, from back in the 1990s and 2000s. She lost one of a pair so she was so happy to get these ones for Mothers Day

"Love it dearly!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful necklace - quite light weight as well, so its not at all cumbersome on the neck. The sterling, stones, and design are pristine and vibrant along with a really nice leather cord - Fermin is very talented indeed. The sole con is the hook/open clasp that could come undone rather easily.
