Ana Cristina Llapa was born in Lima on October 31, 1959. From the time she was a child, she spent most of her time drawing. "I drew everything I saw," she recalls. "I had always wanted to find a place to learn jewelry design, but I didn't find one that seemed right. Finally I discovered the Giorelli School of Art and Design. I studied there full time for two years and I loved learning design and craft techniques.

"After finishing there, I followed my husband, who traveled frequently to Bogota. There I gained experience in jewelry workshops. It was wonderful." Llapa learned a lot and she is adept at every technique.

"Each stone gives me the inspiration for a jewelry set. When I see gem, I then draw the design. Finally, I craft the piece. I work at it during the day, and my wonderful husband helps me with my creations.

"I love being able to show my designs, and I'm happy when someone admires my work. I enjoy talking with them about fashion trends and creating custom designs for different personalities. I love to get feedback on my designs, and to know that people feel better when they see and wear them."

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.
