Alfredo Inga from Peru
is the artisan in the spotlight this week
Alfredo Inga: "I'm from Catacao, northern Peru, considered the 'City of Filigree.' I began to learn this art when I was 11 years old, with friends who taught me little by little. I enjoy it because a jeweler's work is a delicate art. My inspiration comes from nature, especially from flowers. I was awarded a scholarship to study with a professor from Israel. I was offered the chance to teach filigree in Israel. But I love Peru too much to leave."
