"I always strive to create 'clean' designs with organic forms… simple, uncluttered curves… a style and a language."
"I began studying jewelry with Márcio Mattar in 1981. He was one of Brazil's pioneers in jewelry design and taught his students that the creation of the piece was principally a personal expression and that, more than a simple adornment, jewelry was essentially sculpture.
"I worked up to 1986 mainly with jewels in gold, and exhibited my work in renowned art galleries. From 1986 to 1990, with Márcio Mattar, I established an art center, with courses on the creation and execution of jewels along with an art gallery.
"I always strive to create 'clean' designs with organic forms, that is, with nothing geometric but simple, uncluttered curves. At the same time, I developed utilitarian objects in such diverse materials as granite, bronze, crystal and recently, resin. If we put these works side by side – jewelry, glass, photo frames – although their materials are different, we can identify a style and a language.
"From 1998 on, due to Brazil's economic situation it became quite difficult to sell gold jewelry. It became necessary to dedicate myself more to my line of decorative pieces. Resin, which requires the same care as a sculpture, never used immediate forms. I like to create a marble effect, or transparent color; each piece receives individual treatment.
"Showing my work with Novica is like opening a thousand doors and windows at the same time, and is very stimulating. The more the artist reaches out to the public, the more he is reinvigorated, finding an incentive for his creativity."
I searched for years to find a beautiful, unique amethyst ring and with Silvia Lima's ""The Look of Luck"" I found it! It's not cookie cutter jewelry. Instead, it's sculpture for the hand. As an added bonus, the ring is the perfect symbol for celebrating ten years of marriage.
I just received my beautiful resin plate that Silvia made and I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. I love unusual, modern pieces and am so drawn in by the colors! Thank you so much...from start to finish for a wonderful purchase.
I was searching for a pendant for my wife's white gold necklace and most of the nice stuff I was finding on the internet was yellow gold. I came across Novica through a Google search and began browsing in India looking at some Australian Opal pendants but couldn't really find an item (although beautiful) for my wife's tastes (clean and understated, yet elegant). I then came across Silvia Lima's (Brazil) Aquamarine pendant, 'Sea Wave'. It was perfect. Elegant, clean and the perfect size and color. I ordered it as soon as I saw it and it arrived in around 10 days through DSL. She loves it and wears it all the time. It's much more durable than I thought it would be. I also like the fact that it's a unique piece of artwork and it can't be found in a mall or jewelry store. In my case, I definately would order from Novica again. It reassures me that they are alligned with National Geographic. I didn't use standard shipping because I wanted a tracking number and I'm not sure how reliable the mail is in certain countries. I would recommend one of the priority shipping methods. I used the least expensive method and had no problems plus it gave me peace of mind to know that my order would arrive in time for Christmas. Adios and Gracias! Tim Sampson Chicago, IL, USA
my aquamarine sea goddess ring arrived today. it is more beautiful than I expected. Silvia sent along a hand written note as well as a postcard from Brazil. it really made me feel attached to Novica as a supporter and attached to the artisans who are a part of such a wonderful program. I feel lucky to have found Novica.
Incredible! Giving a gift made by Silvia Lima is a joy. All her jewlery touches a beautiful spot. From a guy's point of view: It makes your woman look & feel beautiful! (And that's a good thing!)
I purchase two sets of earrings for my two assistants, I must say the craft work hold it own and the styles reflected what i wanted to transfer to each of them. I will be a repeat customer

Thankyou for the beautiful aquamarine ring you made. My daughter is certainly going to enjoy it!
I just received the gorgeous garnet and silver ring I ordered from Ms. Lima. I absolutely LOVE it...from the sensual, alluring packaging, the personalized note and of course the wonderful piece of wearable art. The stone is lovely along with the craftsmanship that went into the silver ring. Just looking at it infuses me with the courageous power attributed to garnet stone. I highly recommend this artist's work. Thank you so very much for this early birthday gift.
Received my ""sea goddess"" ring today and it is stunning. Thank you so much!
Gold vermeil rose quartz cocktail ring, 'Rose Moon'. This is a great abstract design! Well made and looks great on the hand. It is comfortable to wear as well. If you like large, unique pieces & rose quartz, this is the one for you. Thank you!
Dear Silvia, I just received the ""Sea Wave"" aquamarine pendant. It is absolutely exquisite! It's hard to put into words my reaction when I opened it......it was almost an emotional sense of calm. It is a birthday gift for my 26 yr old granddaughter and I feel certain she will love it too. Thank you for your beautiful creation. Best wishes, Cynthia
I purchased the rose quartz ring. What a beauty, I wear it all the time. Great energy. Thanks!
I bought the Lotus Angel for my girl friend for her birthday and I'm sure that she will love their unique and beautiful design. I am very please with the craftsmanship as well as the fine quality of the materials that the earrings were made of.
I received the emerald pendant necklace, 'Magic Silver Cat' the day before yesterday. Its sparkling green eyes perfectly match the sterling silver necklace. As I am an avid cat lover, this is exactly what I have wanted. In Japan, we believe that cats bring ""good luck."" Obrigado, Silvia.
