"My inspiration comes from my children, a daughter and a son, who fill my house with happiness and give me strength to try new things every day."
"My full name is Jacqueline Susana Lopez Alva, born on 20 May, 1976. I owe my artistic inclinations to my mother, who used to be a fashion designer. Art flows through my veins and I am proud of that.
"I have always enjoyed designing, particularly jewelry. I used to go to nearby markets searching for a necklace or a bracelet, but I was never completely satisfied with what I saw. So, I used to buy more than one, tear them apart, and make one piece according to my own design. Eventually I decided to learn about design and silversmith techniques, so I visited several workshops and learn from those who would have me around.
"I haven't stopped ever since. My jewelry designs fill me with satisfaction. I enjoy the challenge of searching for an adequate finish, and I especially love to combine silver with colorful gemstones.
"My motivation comes from knowing that someone might feel happy when they wear my designs. My inspiration comes from my children, a daughter and a son, who fill my house with happiness and give me strength to try new things every day."
