THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Leslie Granthon
"I have been part of the Novica family since March, 2008. Thanks to Novica, I have managed to improve my technique in the foreign market, achieving more sales and making my clients happy with my art.
"All these years have allowed me to expand my product catalog, both in terms of variety of designs and number of pieces, generating a greater increase in the monthly sales of my jewelry. The challenges I faced were finding the ideal people to complement me in fulfilling my dreams, and also helping the people around me on this path. I feel very grateful for the team that I have managed to form during this time, because there was a lot of learning. At the same time it has allowed me to improve my lifestyle and to be able to carry out personal and family growth.
"One of our goals is to continue working for our dreams, always looking for new alternatives and opening the way to creativity since the world is changing radically after this pandemic. I am very grateful to Novica for the support they provide to artisans around the world. I wish to tell all Novica customers that they are inside a great portal, and they are seeing the world through it, with quality guaranteed in each piece."
Original Artist Story
"I was born in Lima. My mother sews, knits and embroiders, and I have always been interested in art. As a child, I was always painting and drawing, so it was natural choice to study design. After that, I studied jewelry design and crafting at a specialized jewelry institute.
"I've been designing jewelry since 2003, but my fascination with art and crafts has been in me for as long as I can remember. Many times I'll be playing with my hands with some kind of material, and eventually I end up with a new design. I've always been pulling things apart and then putting them back together â€” I'll even fix electrical appliances, but I'd much rather create new designs.
"To me, making jewelry offers me a sanctuary away from the world where I can do what I want. My motivation comes from my love of art and three-dimensional pieces. I love to be able to touch what I create in my mind. I just want to be able to transmit what I feel â€” the inspiration that surges
spontaneously from touching a metal. To me, my craft is like a magical experience that allows me to express what I feel through silver and gems.
"I have exhibited my work in Peru as well as in the Peruvian Embassy in Washington, D.C. You are safe, warm and friendly portal in which I can exhibit my creations, and where shoppers can view them expecting the guarantee of quality.""
