Very well made, bigger pods than anticipated. Peru is her favorite place she has travelled and she also saw chocolate being made from Cocoa pods in Africa. Quality including ear wires was very nice!

"Repeat purchase because these are great!"

I lost one earring after about a year of wearing these as a go-to pair of earrings and am buying these again. They are lightweight which is fabulous, and have a nice reflective sheen and added movement with the amethyst beads.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Teodoro’s eight children are grown and he now has 20 grandchildren. During difficult economic times, he assists with his grandchildren’s education.

Exposed to the unique designs of pre-Hispanic culture by his father, an archeologist and museum curator, Teodoro turned his interest into a livelihood. He learned the hammering, stamping, burning and casting techniques of early craftsmen, using them to create unique jewelry steeped in the culture of ancient Peru. Through his family workshop, he continues to pass these techniques to other artisans. Teodoro has dedicated his life’s work to perpetuating pre-Hispanic jewelry design and production techniques, many of which he was introduced to by Victor Larco, the founder of the Pre-Columbian Museum in Lima.

In his ninth decade of life, Teodoro is no longer able to work and often requires assistance with walking and daily activities. His son and daughter now care for him. In spite of his poor health, he continues to spend time at his workshop, inspiring and guiding the creation of the art he has dedicated his life to.

Teodoro Melendez and Family has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $1500. Proceeds were used to purchase materials such as silver for his work.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
