"I try to transmit life and joy with each design. It's exciting to see the finished pieces being worn by someone. This fills me with satisfaction."
"Hola. I'm Ani Muñiz and I was born in Lima. From the time I was a child I enjoyed handicrafts. My sister Beatriz Muñiz – also a Novica-featured artisan – was and is my greatest source of inspiration.
"I'd watch her creating her designs and I loved it. I'd try to innovate with my own hands and that's how I came to discover inside me what I wanted. I eventually took courses in jewelry making but only to learn the finest finishes. Because I enjoyed creating it so much, I never let a single detail get by me.
"I try to transmit life and joy with each design. It's exciting to see the finished pieces being worn by someone. This fills me with satisfaction. I can't explain it in words… the feeling makes me able to always create something even better.
"I try on every design that I make, as I am my own harshest critic. Finally, when I'm satisfied with my creation and it feels good, then it is ready to be worn and seen by others.
"I hope each one of my designs gives you as much joy as they all give me."
9 Testimonials for Ani Muniz
I just received my necklace and wore it to church today. I like its strong graphic nature and the how comfortable it feels on my neck. It is classic enough to wear with many outfits.
I bought the sodalite choker fringe necklace 'Blue Planet' as I would like to have a sodalite necklace. The stones are of a very nice blue with white specks. The necklace has nice design with round beads in vertical drops of several rows from left to right. But I think the chains used to connect up the beads don't do justice to the necklace. They look like weak links & it would have been better if the chains are thicker & more shiny.
