"I want you to feel happy and enjoy my jewelry as much as I do."
"I'm Adriana Rosa de Gadea, born in Italy on December 6, 1945. I've lived in Peru since 1962 when my father's work brought him to Trujillo. I went to school there, graduating from college with a degree in economic sciences. For the next 13 years, I worked in a bank. By then I was married with two daughters, and we moved to Lima when my husband was transferred there.
"I worked another ten years in a bank in the capital. I resigned to take some time out with my family and especially to dedicate some time to the girls. I began to look for something I could do that would let me manage my own time and had the wonderful opportunity to study jewelry design for a year. After I finished the course, I began crafting jewelry as a hobby. But it snowballed and today I dedicate all my time to this craft.
"I work from home, and even weekends and holidays find me at work. My clients have become my friends and there is no request I won't answer. They tell me, 'Adriana, I need something urgently. It's someone's birthday and you're the only one who can help me.' Of course I don't turn them down. I love to help and it's a part of my being.
"Jewelry design is my principal activity. It's an enormous satisfaction when someone asks me to make a piece and I can see the happiness on her face. This fills me with pride and makes me look for better designs and craft better pieces day after day. To see people contented with my jewelry… my designs are an expression of art and I need to feel inspired the entire time so that each one comes out the way I want it to.
"The forms and colors of a piece inspire me as I work. I really don't try to transmit a special message, just the quality of my jewelry. This is something I've always paid special attention to – that no one comes knocking on my door to tell me a piece is badly crafted. This is the secret of my jewelry.
"I want to tell Novica shoppers that they'll be pleased with the quality and finishing of my designs, and won't find anything like them. I want you to feel happy and enjoy my jewelry as much as I do."

COLLECTIONS FEATURING Men's Fine Silver Bracelets
Men's Fine Silver Bracelets
Fine silver differs from sterling silver in the amount of copper used to create the material worn in jewelry and seen in home goods. Copper is a necessary element of silver jewelry, as pure silver is far too malleable and stretchy to be used in almost anything. While sterling silver is comprised of 92.5% pure silver, fine silver featured in this collection contains 95% pure silver. Find fine silver bracelets for men from uniquely skilled artisans trained to work with this rather tricky material. One of these artists in this collection has a grander goal for her work beyond masterful artistry. Thailand’s Achara and her team strive to preserve Thai and Hill tribes through their designs, Achara says, “when we learned that the hill tribe people of northern Thailand had wonderful silversmith skills, but that most of their jewelry wasn't considered very marketable, we decided we wanted to find a way to help them.” She explains, “…we could help them develop more handcrafting skills, improve their designs so they would be more appealing to the general public, and improve the quality of their work, which meant refining their centuries-old traditional methods.” Find beautiful jewelry from Achara and the many other talented artisans featured in this collection of men’s fine silver bracelets.
