Handmade Sterling Jewelry

While in Peru shopping we found a wonderful family owned shop that made beautiful sterling jewelry. They have been hand making jewelry for a few generations and the detail and craftsmanship is exquisite! One of the owners Yllich showed us his workshop where the items are created. His grandfather taught him and his brothers how to make good quality gold and silver jewelry. It was a real joy to see how it was made and how much time and detail was put into their work. It was the highlight of our trip!  We brought the pieces pictured back with us. They have many,many more beautiful pieces in their store called Joyitas in Cusco. We are hoping that Yllich will come over to the states and visit our shop and bring some of his pieces with himhandmade sterling necklace from peru at charlies antiques in williamsburg vahandmade sterling bracelet made in peru at charlies antiques in williamsburg va

Back from Peru

We just got back from our annual trip to Peru. This trip was no exception for the colorful,beautiful sights we always see! We shopped and shopped and brought back an assortment of textiles and jewelry. The trip was not without a few complications as usual, when we arrived in Cusco we found out our hotel reservations had been cancelled because of a fire.  But luckily it was a small hotel chain called Terra Viva and they had another hotel in Cusco that they rerouted us too. It was just another 1000 feet up the mountainside so we got plenty of exercise getting to it. So for the extra hiking they comped us a free lunch at a fantastic restaurant. Best food we had on this trip.  The weather was cool but nice. We also went to Lima which was 82 degrees. I will be posting more when I get some pictures of the beautiful handmade jewelry we bought.peruvian alpaca shawl, silky scarves from peru at charlies antiques in williamsburg vaalpaca poncho with crochet edging from Peru at charlies antiques in williamsburg vaalpaca shawl from peru,colorful textiles at charlies antiques in williamsburg va
