the mirror is beautiful”

Thank you Asunta for the care of the mirror. It is obvious that your heart and soul went into its creation and packaging. I was a little worried that a mirror coming from the Andes would be damaged on arriving. It arrived perfect and beautiful and what a great addition to any home it will grace.

Love it!”

The red is slightly darker than it looked on my screen -- Id say 2/3 red 1/3 brown? The details are finer. The panels are polished and smoothed. Mirror is light and has one hook to hang. Happy with purchase. :)

Beautiful Design and Attention to Detail”

The Asunta Pelaez flying Hummingbirds 6-drawer jewelry box is a delight. The quality of the painting is extraordinary, and the overall craftsmanship of the box is of very high quality and shows the attention to detail of this artist. Could not be happier with this unique, beautiful work of art. Anyone who appreciates artistic quality will be thrilled with Asuntas designs. The box was well packed and delivered promptly.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Confronting Adversity

Confronting Adversity

In 2016, Asunta was diagnosed with a serious throat disease. She has no health insurance and uses her earnings from NOVICA to fund her treatments. She also has a husband and her workers who depend on her. Through all this, she has shown such perseverance and strength and continues to work hard and balance her responsibilities.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Asunta uses the traditional Peruvian technique of reverse-painted glass. Brought to Peru during the colonial period, every detail is done by hand, requiring great skill and patience. She teaches the technique to others through her workshop and hopes they will continue to practice and pass down the traditional technique to keep it alive for future generations.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Asunta's sales have increased more than threefold since she joined Novica. When Asunta first started out, she had a small workshop with two part-time assistants. Now she is able to rent a larger space close to her home and provide work for more people.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Asunta Pelaez has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1800 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood, paint and lacquer for production.

Job Creator

Job Creator

In addition to the artisans she employs full time, Asunta works with one temporary artisan — another NOVICA artisan who helps Asunta with the most physically demanding parts of her work because of her illness.

Enabling Education

This artist is currently supporting and providing for the education of their children, grandchildren, or children in their community, whether it be at the primary, secondary, or university level.

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

Asunta's sales are critical to supporting herself, her elder husband and her workers along with their families. Her personal health situation makes each sale that much more important.
