What a year 2019 has been!



I am so grateful for the many good things I have experienced this year.  However, I am sad to say that I lost one of my aunties earlier this year because of a mass transportation bus running over both my aunts while they were crossing the street.  This tragic and unexpected loss has put a damper on my happy moments and accomplishments for 2019.

I am feeling super excited to have participated in some awesome local artisan markets and events that have allowed me to grow my jewelry business.

I'm just going to share a few of the moments that have made 2019 a great year to me and my handmade business despite all the heartache!

So grateful that I can participate in the Artisan Market
on weekends at Pase La Princesa in Old San Jua

The UPR Rio Piedras campus is one of my favorite places to set up.
Always so welcoming 
I started participating in the Agro and Artisan Market in
Bario Obrero and I enjoy the vibe of this little market place.

I finally got my Artisan Certification in Puerto Rico

I am very excited to have finally gained my certification status as a Puerto Rican Artisan!  I have been trying since 2011 to achieve this and now I am so happy, excited and marveled by how easy, yet so painful the process was. There is actually a Law that governs the artisans in the island.  Known as Law Number 166 from August 11, 1995, this law defines what is an artisan, the categories of artisanal products, how the artisans are regulated and what agencies are in charge of doing so.

The interested candidates must go to the Compania de Fomento Industrial (known locally as

Gem Lace Wire-Wrapped Earrings Tutorial

I like working with wire and gemstones and needless to say I like wrapping wires around gemstones. I made earrings like this a few years ago using pearls and to this day I still have them and get a lot of compliments whenever I wear them. These earrings are super easy to make and the materials are fairly simple: 1 strand of round gemstone beads (between 2mm to 4mm) 10" - 12" sterling silver wire - 26 gauge  to 28 gauge, I prefer to use 26 gauge 2 large hole sterling silver beads (2mm -4mm) 2 sterling silver hooks Tools: flat nose pliers round nose pliers flush cutter The final size of the earrings is determined by the size of the gemstone beads.  Also, I listed round beads because they give the most symmetrical shapes when wire-wrapped.
