"Beautiful Gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought these for my mother, who said they are absolutely gorgeous. They apparently go well with a necklace she already has, so she wears them often. She appreciates the sterling silver ear hooks for her sensitive skin. Depending on what theyre worn with, the coloring of the stones can shift in a subtle way from aqua to almost a sea glass shade, so theyre quite versatile for her. I will most likely purchase from these artists again.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

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.

Confronting Adversity

Confronting Adversity

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.
