Artisan Information

Estuardo Jimenez

Shop all Estuardo Jimenez products

My name is Estuardo Jimenez and my hometown is near Antigua, Guatemala. I was born into a very close-knit and hardworking family. My parents have always been role models for me and my sisters. I'm a jeweler and I've been interested in this art because I have memories of it as far back as I can remember.

There's always been jewelry work in my house. I've been lucky to see my father working wehn I was growing up. I learned to appreciate and value it since I was young because I'd help out in my family's workshop. Although I admit, sometimes I would only goof off and joke around. I've been asked a lot from whom I learned and it's odd that I can't name anyone in particular, although I'm clearly my dad's number one fan.

Since I was young I liked to work with my uncles and other artisans in the workshop, watching the way they handled jade and silver until they finished a piece. As a child, I was curious to learn and do as the others, ‘working' on my own pieces. Maybe my jewelry wasn't the prettiest, but my parents motivated me and applauded my efforts.

When I was a teenager, I started to design and work on my own pieces of jewelry after coming home from school. Little by little, I started experimenting and becoming a perfectionist. That's how I earned my parents' trust and they gave me more responsibilities in the workshop.

We began working with you in 2010 as the Jimenez Family. Then one day we decided — as a family— that I should start to sell my own designs. Now, I work on my own jewelry, designing and crafting alone. I also help and support my parents in the workshop like I've always done.

This new journey where I present my designs to the world alone as Estuardo and not as a family is an important undertaking for me because my work has to speak for me about where I'm from, my skills and my roots.

I dream about making my and my parents' workshops grow, to take this family legacy to the next level so that my family is known for what they have achieved. I want us to keep supporting each other to improve our lives and the lives of our community by teaching more people so they have a job and income for their families.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
