"I tell people I have the best job in the world and I give it all: my patience, my love and my hard work in order to obtain the best quality possible."
"I come from the Quispe Family, Novica featured artists, and I learned by watching my father at work as well as other artisans in my village. I enjoyed creating my own pieces and eventually I decided to be immersed in the wonderful world of jewelry.
"When I first started, I crafted small pieces with simple designs to gain practice and be able to earn and save enough to buy my own materials and tools. I began to work alongside my parents and relatives in 2001 but, now that I have my own family, I decided to become independent so that I could provide for them.
"One of the most interesting lessons to learn was about polishing. I could polish everything except for the actual piece: my nails would end up being polished, or I would end up perforating the piece! Now I'm proud to say I'm an expert when it comes to polishing.
"I've always enjoyed all kinds of manual crafts like knitting, embroidery, sewing, and baking, but in the end making jewelry wins above all.
"I tell people I have the best job in the world and I give it all: my patience, my love and my hard work in order to obtain the best quality possible.
"I'm motivated by a desire to highlight women's beauty and personality through my designs and creations. What I'm trying to transmit are new jewelry ideas, because in Peru we are capable of crafting all types of jewelry so they are available to all.
"To me, this art form is a way to express our ideas through our different designs and the love that we feel toward it. I have exhibited my work in Lima and throughout the country.
"To Novica clients I would like to say that we are simple, humble people looking for a way to move ahead. All of our pieces are made with love and high professional standards."
Love this unique necklace - it is more detailed than I expected. Thanks for your beautiful work!
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Fabiana, thank-you so much for your striking earrings ""Andean Mystique""; I love them! The materials are first rate: the Andean silver is beautiful, and the clear flawless amazonite reminds me of the heavenly blue of a mountain lake. Your craftsmanship and design are first rate as well: the blend of polished with oxidized silver in the frame sets off the amazonite richly. The result is original and classic at the same time, unique but distinctively Peruvian. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Today I received the incredibly lovely sterling silver heart with chrysocolla necklace called ""Secret Love"". It is superb! Thank you so much for making the wonderful jewelry that you do.

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.
Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.
Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.
Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
