My intention is to show a different facet of Peruvian artistry, which I consider to be dynamic. It is handcrafted, original and of good quality."
Claudia Llaury was born in the Callao province of Peru on December 14, 1971. "I worked in marketing, because it allowed me to develop my creative side," admits Claudia.
"I have always had what I term 'creative restlessness.' I used to daydream about new shapes and color combinations, but I hadn't considered developing my artistic instincts any further. Then, in 2005, I realized I just had to develop this side of me. I also counted with the full support of my husband and relatives.
"Expert silversmiths help me translate my designs into extraordinary jewelry pieces. Together we look at what is trendy, but our ideas come from our own creativity.
"My intention is to show a different facet of Peruvian artistry, which I consider to be dynamic. It is handcrafted, original and of good quality. This is a totally new adventure for me, and I love the fact there's always something new to learn every day.
"I would like to share with the world the quality and originality of my work, and to show them that in Peru we can also make things that are modern and fashionable."
