Rosa Tomatis from Peru
'When I was very young, my family saw my natural instinct for drawing, so they found an art teacher for me. Thus I followed this path, and I found it more and more beautiful,' recalls Rosa Tomatis. 'I'm a painter but as a girl I learned all about leather, as my father worked with tanners. I design and work with leather, and I also craft jewelry. With both, I select the very best materials. I love to mix natural elements with silver.'
