"In a way, my work deals with the richness of nature. My motivation comes from a desire to complement female beauty with my designs, which are infused with Peruvian artistry."
"What really counts is innovation. My designs speak of tradition yet they are modern and feature the harmony between metal, pearls and gemstones. In a way, my work deals with the richness of nature. My motivation comes from a desire to complement female beauty with my designs, which are infused with Peruvian artistry.
"I was born in Lima on November 9, 1958. As a child, I loved creating my own jewelry to wear at parties, or give to friends as gifts. By the age of 14, I was already wearing my own creations.
"In college, I signed up for elective courses in jewelry making, where I learned the essentials of the craft. For me, this was a hobby I kept refining and perfecting. I was still taking courses when my husband passed away. At that point, I quit school to seek a steady job to support my young son. That has been the greatest challenge of my life.
"I decided to set up my own workshop where I could develop my jewelry designs. And it's a way to rescue ancestral techniques in gold and silver, reproducing colonial designs and fine filigree. I've researched the handcrafted jewelry styles developed in Peru over the centuries and have experimented with many great materials that I incorporate into my designs. Of all of those, I prefer Andean opal with its exquisite colors and extraordinary veins.
"Designing is easy. I just think of what I'd like to wear."
The Lapis Lazuli bracelet, ""Garlands"" was so detailed and beautiful. We have never seen anything quite like it. Thanks also for wrapping it so nicely in the handprinted giftwrap. My girlfriend absolutely loved it. -Joseph Paul
I have been looking for a refined brooch to wear with an elegant suit for some years now. I cannot explain why but, when I received my parcel from Peru containing the 'Filigree Dove', I was overcome with emotion. It is simply beautiful, it's delicate shape and attention to detail speaks volumes about the care taken by and skill of the artist, Guiliana Valz-Gen. Thank you for this precious gift.
I bought the 'Loving Heart' necklace from Giuliana and am extremely happy with the purchase of such a beautiful and detailed piece of work. I am looking forward to what other items can she make.
I was so impressed with a recent purchase of the Filigree Dove brooch by Giuliana Valz-Gen that I immediately purchased the Cross of Faith necklace for my little niece who is making her First Communion soon. This too is a stunning piece, intricate in its detail but which has a freshness and simplicity that speaks of purity of faith and love. I'm sure it will be a treasured gift. Thank you.

The filigree work on the ""Margarita"" earrings that I purchased is beautiful as are the pearl drops. I have never seen anything quite like these earrings and I will certainly purchase from Ms Valz-Gen again! Thank you!

I recently bought a ""Heart Full of Love"" pendant - it is exquisite, just beautifully made - thank you Giuliana. I have now ordered ""In My Heart"" - thanking you in advance for your fabulous work. Warm regards - Chris
Giuliana, I just received the earrings I ordered to give to my sister for Christmas. They are absolutely stunning, and I know she will treasure them! Thank you for putting so much love into your art!
The delicate filigree parrot was so carefully made that tiny marks for the feathers were present on the smooth part of the body. The proportions were true to life. Thank you for a fine art work, Giuliana Valz-Gen.

I purchased the 'Antique Cross of Faith' as a gift for someone I work with. When I showed a few co-workers the picture of this cross, they all agreed it was beautiful and would suit the person it was being purchased for. When I received it, I was very pleased. It was dainty, unique, and the styling was exquisite. The recipient of this gift was very pleased with the cross and put in on as soon as she saw it. Thank you for your wonderful filigree design jewellery. I will definitely be purchasing more items from you in the future.

I recently purchased the ""Filigree Dove' necklace that I had on my wishlist for some time. It was even more beautiful than it appeared in the photo. I love the filigree styling and the symbolism of the dove as 'peace'. It was well worth waiting for and now it one of my favourite pieces of jewellery. I had also purchased another piece of jewellery, a silver cross with amethyst, for a friend. This was so beautiful and she loved it. I look forward to purchasing more of your amazing work. All the best of you and your family.
I ordered the Filigree Beauty earrings 203072, for my daughter. They are exquisite and beautifully made. Giuliana Valz-Gen is a gifted artist. I would certainly purchase more of her beautiful creations.
I love my gold vermeil earrings ""Spiral Medallions"". They are elegant, well crafted and a reasonable price. Thank you for your artistry!
I have purchased at least 2 products from this artist. Each was excellent in proportion, pattern and presence. I would gladly observe her working environment/procedures if possible. I visited bazaars while living in the Middle East and watching the gold and silver artisans was always my favorite pastime (sniffing spices too) - I could spend hours there without knowing it :). Working those ancient metals echoes the human experience. May you do well artisan!!!
We received the beautiful earrings crafted by Giuliana Valz-Gen, and they were perfect. My wife loves these earrings and has promised to wear them often. Thank you very much for making me a hero for a day.
