Handmade Peruvian Jewlery and Accesories
Hi my name is Edú and I am the designer and main artist of Wari Designs. I am from Peru and now live in Denver Colorado. My art is a fusion between the ancient – Pre-Incan and Incan – with the modern. In actuality, it is fusion of two styles (modern and ancient), both in terms of physical design and spiritual significance of each stone and symbol. I am working to understand the properties of stones and how they can help people, and incorporate that into beautiful modern and wearable pieces of art. Whenever I make jewelry, I first imagine how the piece will look when it is finished and then how it will look neck or arm of a woman wearing it. In general, I am inspired by the physical and spiritual beauty of women, and her connection with nature and the universe. In each piece of jewelry that I make, utilize different Pre-Incan and Incan iconographic symbols from my culture fused with the modern world.
I started making jewelry about 9 years ago in order to fulfill my lifelong dream of going to college to become a veterinarian. I was the first of my siblings to go to college and had to figure out how to support myself while I was in school. I as ended up learning wirework and macramé jewelry, making and selling my art on the street, as many artisans do in South America. It was a job that allowed me to be flexible while I was in school, something that I could do in the evenings and in between classes. Much of my art was self-taught, learned by trying and failing and trying again. I also had some friends that were jewelers and we shared ideas and helped each other out. I started by imitating jewelry I’d seen my sisters wearing and I gave my first few pieces as gifts to friends and family.
Now I am living in the U.S. and have worked to establish Wari Designs as a way offering you my wirework jewelry made from recycled German silver, bronze and copper and semi-precious stones from all over the world.
