"I'm a young Nicaraguan artisan, in love with my country as well, of everything that Nicaragua is — of all of our colors and traditions. I've worked in silver for a very long time.
"I've learned this art from distinguished artisans like Manuel Fredebrecht, a Novica-featured artisan, who taught me different techniques.
"As time passed, I've been able to create unique jewelry by combining methods of working with different kinds of finishing. This has helped me gain the confidence of shoppers, who trust me. They like the geometric precision of my designs and their contemporary look.
"My dream in life is to continue designing and creating jewelry and be able to make my workshop larger so I can teach many others."
