"When I was a little girl, I liked to create all kinds of bracelets and necklaces in all colors… In school, I'd do abstract style drawings that always ended up as jewelry."
"I was born in Lima on August 25, 1972. My history with jewelry began practically at birth. As a child, I couldn't wear earrings because my ears weren't pierced (my father didn't want this done) and I'd ask my mother to look everywhere for clip-on earrings, very difficult to find in those days, as there were almost no designs for children. Each time she'd find a pair for me, I'd take care of them like gold, even more than I looked after my dolls.
"When I was a little girl, I liked to create all kinds of bracelets and necklaces in all colors. Whenever we'd go to visit someone, the only thing I cared about was that person's jewelry chest. I always asked them to show me the pieces they had and I could look at them for hours.
"When I was 12, for my birthday, I was able to get my ears pierced. The whole family gave me earrings and from that day on, I don't think I ever stopped wearing them. Even when I had surgery three years ago, I asked them to leave my earrings in place.
"In school, I'd do abstract style drawings that always ended up as jewelry. Then I entered the university and majored in communications, as I thought it was the most creative school within the University of Lima.
"A few years ago I began designing jewelry for myself. In fact, designing is the part I like best. And even though I never studied jewelry, I have continued to design it. This is what I am really passionate about doing. My pieces are mostly fashioned of sterling silver and the natural gemstones mined in my country."
I have just received my ""Perfection"" pearl earrings. On the website, they looked so unusual and beautiful; in my ears, they look simply amazing. The overall design is lovely, and the silvercraft is glorious. What a wonderful combination of traditional ""ingredients"" and innovative design. Thank you, Caterina!

I love the Starfish earrings I purchased from Caterina. They are large enough to be noticed and the starfish is has a wonderful design. I will definitely purchase again from this artist.
I've been wearing Caterina's 'Distraction' large, sparkling, sterling ball stud earrings. They go with most everything, clothes-wise, and really light up your face. I just love them. I'm thinking I'll have to go for the dangle balls in a little while. Quality is excellent. Sparkle is even across the spheres. Get ready for a big smile when you see these in person!
I just received my beautiful silver necklace titled ""Distraction"", and it is such a lovely petite thing. The texture is so unique and has a very modern look. I love it. Thank you!
