About

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.

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 would eventually like to start working with other Peruvian artisans to help them utilize the power of the internet and the global market to get their products seen by more than tourist foot traffic on the streets of Arequipa, Peru.

Thank you for taking a look at my store.
