From her native Peru, Coco has travelled around the world. She passionately shares her adventures in China, Japan, Africa and Europe. There she travelled to learn from local craftsmen. For example, she has learnt the ancient techniques of local silversmith. And she also knows the representative symbolisms of different cultures. It has been an inward journey too; a journey of cultural knowledge and spiritual growth. Coco is an artist, a jewel designer and a craftswoman as well. Her earrings and pendants are all hand-made. But her main designs are necklaces. Splendid ones, all of them are unique, of high-quality and very innovative. She mixes semi-precious stones: amethyst, agate and turquoise stones, silver crosses from Spain or Egypt and vintage jewels. Every necklace shows Coco’s strong personality. She also combines  them with modern trends. Coco carefully combines beads to achieve a sense of harmony, going beyond colours and shapes. And so her jewels become something close to a spiritual journey. She wants each and every necklace to become an item that lasts forever.
