Artisan Information

Luis Zuñiga

I was born in Chiapas, an area rich in deposits of natural amber.

I am an jeweler with a particular fascination for amber. I've always loved getting to know the essence of my country, and making a piece of jewelry that conveys this same spirit gives me a great feeling of gratitude, which I want to share with everyone I can.

"My mother, Lilia Mijangos, taught me. She often took me to her workshop, and I always loved seeing the amber. One of the things she shared with me was the importance of observation and initiative. She told me that the ideas I had would amount to nothing if I didn't develop my own technique with confidence.

"For me, selecting the amber is the essence of my work. I love teaching people what this resin has to offer — it's like having a millennary piece of life in your hands, one that complements your personality.

I find my greatest inspiration in the simple task of observing the resin with its spectrum of colors, and imagining how this piece was in the earth way before any of our generations. I love transforming it into jewelry.

"Together with my wife, I set out on this dream of mine. Our dreams are the reality of each person's life. A also each classes in amber jewelry."

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.
