"My father had his jewelry workshop in our house… I liked going to his workshop a lot, and sometimes he'd get angry and tell me, 'Get out of here. This is no place for a girl.'"
"Because of World War II, my father came to Brazil from Portugal at the age of five, along with his parents, siblings and uncles. Since almost all of them were goldsmiths, they continued to practice their profession in Brazil.
"My father had his jewelry workshop in our house, where he worked and met with suppliers and customers for metal, stones and other materials inherent to his work. I liked going to his workshop a lot, and sometimes he'd get angry and tell me, 'Get out of here. This is no place for a girl. You should study to be a teacher!' I was never able to get him to teach me. He taught my brothers a little, but they didn't like it and didn't continue with my father's work.
"I trained in physiotherapy and worked in that field for many years, but I was always enchanted with the universe of jewelry. Then, when I was almost 50, I decided to enroll in a jewelry design course with the Jeweler's Association, and later, I took a handicraft course in crocheting with metal.
"I sell my pieces in an informal way, directly to my clients, who spread the word among their friends. I am very happy about working with Novica because now I can show my creations to the whole world."
An absolutely beautiful piece of artwork! 'Space and Time' is elegant and fits my wrist perfectly. It is a unique piece that will be treasured for a long time to come. Thank you very much Aurea.

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.
Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.
Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.
Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
