"My designs are inspired by everything I see around me, by the beauty of gems, and by our ancestors' jewelry."
Born in Lima, Fermín Vilcapoma honors his family's legacy with his talented work as a jewelry designer. Fermín has been fascinated by gemstones from a young age. He marks his beginnings as a silversmith to age eleven, when, after school, he'd help his father at the family's workshop.
"I used to go to school in the morning, but I was always daydreaming, creating new designs," Fermín recalls. "After school, I'd rush to my father's workshop to help him or to practice creating my own designs. Jewelry has been all I ever wanted to do, so I saw no point in going to university. I was able to dedicate more time to the workshop when I graduated from high school. We were able to attract more customers then, and the family's business began to increase steadily.
"My designs are inspired by everything I see around me, by the beauty of gems, and by our ancestors' jewelry. I enjoy the creative part most. I love to design, and I am always happy to listen to our customer's opinions and suggestions. I am eager to see what Novica's clients think of my jewelry!"
