"Metal work has been part of Peruvian culture since before the Incas. It is an inheritance that my father taught me and I have taught my children. In our workshop, we make many replicas of Inca and traditional Peruvian art. We use brass, copper and silver like our ancestors did. This keeps our culture alive."

Angel still supports most of his family. He provides for his own wife and the wife of his eldest son. He pays for the education of his children. His Novica sales enable him to do so, providing a steady source of income for the family.

Angel Franco has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2000. Proceeds were used to invest in a bulk purchase of bronze and copper for his metalwork.

Angel has four children. His eldest son is unable to pay for the education of his two daughters. Angel provides for his granddaughters' education.

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

"Breathtaking!"

We purchased this cross as a gift for a relative that seems to love Latin American culture. I love that it came wrapped up ready to give away and that the size was just right. Its detail is amazing beautiful and perfect for the person who has everything. It inspires faith , adds a rich cultural artistic presence and made in time for Christmas. The craftsmanship is simply breathtaking. Very happy with this unique work of art.

"a beautiful gift for a collector"

My best friend's mother collects crosses, and she was very pleased with this beautiful cross. The crushed chrysocolla has a real depth, and then the warmth of the wood and the silver heart provides contrast. Highly recommended.

"I was going to be a gift... But I'm keeping it"

I have a tradition of purchasing a cross whenever I visit a new country. I was in peru last month (February, 2019), but I could not find Among the many street peddlers and shops. I was disappointed and settled for a painted cross embarked with "Peru" From the airport in Lima. I do not know why, but I decided to look on Novica. I'm glad I did. This cross is much more beautiful and substantial than it appears in the pictures. The wood is excellently finished and the copper and enamel are thick and wonderfully finished. I am truly impressed.
