Mica Bernedo's Profile
I'm a New Zealander currently living in Peru.
I found myself here after meeting my Peruvian husband in the mountains of Colorado nearly eight years ago.
We've been living here for over 3 years now and last October we welcomed our first child. Although Peru can drive me a little bit crazy on a daily basis, I have fallen in love with this country, it's traditions, and it's people.
The jewelery I sell comes from the work I do with a Peruvian man who supports his family by selling handmade silver pieces. He has a tiny little workshop and store hidden at the back of a friends Andean clothing store. He sources the stones from all over South America, and has amassed a huge collection.
I think he makes beautiful pieces and I wish his work could be more easily accesible to people, so he could provide a better life for himself and his young family…
