Artisan Organization: Silvia Garcia

Country: Andes

"I was born in Iquitos, one of the most charming towns in the Peruvian rain forest, on April 6, 1973. We moved to the capital, where I went to school.

"As a child, I was interested by handicrafts and I also loved playing outdoors. As I grew older, I became fascinated with museums and cultural centers where I could feel the energy of our culture and especially our handcrafted arts.

"My friends say I'm very sensitive to art. In 1997, I enrolled in a jewelry institute because I was very interested in metals and gemstones. I felt that this is the best way for me to express my creativity, my aesthetic and myself. I was always a timid child and jewelry helped me conquer my shyness รขโ‚ฌโ€ I can convey my energy through my designs, a positive energy. I feel so proud when I see my ideas become a reality.

"I find inspiration in everything around me, especially colors. I really like ceramics and gemstones. We artisans express the best of ourselves in each and every design.""
