"I'm Carol Noriega Rengifo and I was born in Lima on May 4, 1975. I got my start in the world of art looking at jewelry in shop windows. I loved what I saw, and I wondered why I couldn't make my own, if others did. So I tried.
"At first, my designs were simple and I'd ask how to craft them or how to finish something. Little by little I acquired practice while I'd look for a specific detail in each piece by myself.
"I strive to transmit elegance and beauty in my jewelry so that the woman who wears it feels good about it and identifies with each piece. When I see my designs being worn, I feel so proud and happy. It's exciting to show my jewelry to my best friend and see that she likes it. This helps me and is part of what she knows of my accomplishments.
"I'd like to tell each Novica shopper that she'll feel elegant and beautiful when wearing my creations."
