I was born in Argentina in 1990, but came to to Guatemala nine years later to live with my mother. My friends call me 'Rous.'

I love creating jewelry with materials that most people would discard. I'm helping the environment and am contributing a little bit to help reduce pollution.

"I recycle materials like CDs. I had many in my house, most of them scratched, but I didn't want to throw them out because they take years to decompose. I looked for a way to transform them into something pretty.

"The CDs can be melted and molded. By by experimenting, I learned to control the temperature, then I add droplets of the acrylic used in stained glass. Although I've established a methodology, the results are always a surprise. Each piece becomes a unique work of eco-art.

"This craft has given me a way to free up my thoughts and feelings so I can express myself spontaneously. Because my jewelry is eco-friendly, I feel good about that I do.

"Let's all take the time to think about the endless opportunities we have to give 'waste' materials another chance."

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.
