A story of CIRCLES, LIFE, MIRACLES & PERFECTION!

Ethnic Silver Jewelry is born in Huanchaco, Peru, on january 22nd 2015, which perfectly coincides with the new moon in aquarius, which is the month of freedom from boundaries.
This story is about miracles, life and perfection.

I grow up in the gold jewelry business since i was 12 and was in it till i was 29, as it was my mother's business.
It was 3rd DEC 1993, i was 12 years old, when my family and me inaugurated the opening of our WALL STREET JEWELRY, based in the famous Via Roma 19B, Trieste, Italy. We were selling 14 and 18 KT italian gold for 16 years. Then italian economy changed, we have been unable to adapt and sadly closed the business.
I did not know what to do with my life, I felt lost and for a long time. I dedicated myself to a lot of spiritual study. It is said that when you have confusion in life, you soul needs spiritual study and so it will lead you exactely where you need to be.
And so 3 dec 2014 came, exactely 21 years since the inauguration of my family jewelry shop, I am in Lima where, as the perfect casuality, i find myself with some South American jewellers and the effect is that in less than a day i am already selling jewelry again. 3 december 2014 i make the first sale...to whom? To Harry Potter, an amazing young chinese enterpreneur. Harry Potter gives me the blessing of the first sale and Harry Potter makes me undestand i have jewelry in the blod and pushes me to go forward. And it is the same Harry Potter, on this same december 3rd who takes a picture of my favourite earring and i post it on facebook, receiving many LIKES, confirming me once again the direction.

30 dec 2014 i started to look at this Etsy, 30 dec 2009 my mum was closing the business in Trieste. 30 december, again. I see it as the perfect continuation.

Want to hear for another sign? Well, when i was a teenager, my mother tried to direct me into the silver business, but at that time it did not work...but it did happen naturally 21 years after.

Friends helped me to take good pictures, i studied from the forums and quite soon 22 january 2014, new moon aquarius, came and the Etsy shop was open. New moon aquarius, the opportunity to get free from boundaries, what a perfect timing! The first item was sold on Etsy almost immediately, than the second and the third. I was craizly enthusiastic, i could not sleep from the enthusiasm, it was so nice to look at the statistics and see how many people, from so different countries are looking at my shop.

Then i spent time learning, getting good artesans to help me ...Mr. Augusto is an amazing senior jeweller who is a kind of tutor for me, than there is Juancarlos and Abel, than there are the teachers of Cite Koriwasi jewelry school from Cajamarca whom I also consoult when it is needed.
And things started moving in the proper direction and took me till New York, yes, to NEW YORK, as i wanted to see what people liked in New York and also i wanted to know in person Mr and Mrs GRIT and all the people of etsy.com.

And then i got back to Peru and moved to Cusco, the capital of the Inca empire, the belly of South America and now i work and live in this amazing energy vortex of Qosqo. All items you see in my shop are designed and done here in magical Cusco and i feel very fortunate to present to you each one of them.

Some hints of interesting research for the future? Eco silver or sustainable mining...why? It s a long story, however we have to know that around mining there is a lot of illegal activities and many interest. As i always liked gold and silver but i also care for the planet, i would like to know how did the ancients to this work and apply it in my shop.

Thank you for reading me!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

2 possibilities:
a) Platex
b) bicarbonate, liquid soap and water.

PLATEX is a specific liquid for cleaning silver/metal. It is available in most supermarkets.

BICARBONATE &SOAP & WATER. Mix bicarbonate and soap to get a soft cream. With a soft cotton delicately go through the jewelry, for not more than one minute per piece. Then you immediately clean the jewelry under running cold water. At the end you dry it with a soft textile. Do not loose time during the process, pass from one phase to the other quickly. Do not forget the jewel under the bicarbonate soap. It has to be a simple and quick operation, so that you can immediately wear again your beautiful pendant.

Custom and personalized orders

It will be my pleasure to make a special jewel for you. Please write me a message and I will be happy to work with you on your design.

Wholesale availability

Yes, sure. I recommed from 500 gr up to 2 kg. Will be shipped with DHL.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All my items come in a nicely decorated envelope. Inside there is a package with a jewelry bag (where your piece is inside) and a thank you letter.
