Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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 given his life to.

Teodoro was the victim of a fraud that threatened his economic survival. The resulting stress led to a stroke. Through two years of intensive therapy, the love and support of his family enabled him to continue his art and return to his workshop.

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

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

Your Andean planet earrings and bracelet are so very beautiful! I hope to see a matching necklace soon to complete the set! The blue and green colors of the stones are gorgeous. Thank you
