Amethyst's rich hues have always elicited a passionate response. Teodoro Melendez and Family of Peru create an irresistible focal point for their artisan-crafted accessories by using two amethyst beads in each hook earring. The colorful round beads contrast wonderfully with the sterling silver's high polish glow. The design of the dangle earrings is straightforward, but that's what gives them that go-with-everything style.

Thank you so much for my beautiful earrings! This was my first purchase through Novica and I?m absolutely thrilled with the quality and the value of these sweet little earrings. The amethyst really shines and they are light and delicate. They came with a jewelry pouch and a handwritten thank you note from the Artist. Gracias! Un abrazo muy fuerte desde los Estados Unidos!

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.
