Adriana de Gadea from Peru
Born in Italy, Adriana Rosa de Gadea has lived in Peru most of her life. 'I began crafting jewelry as a hobby, something to do in my free time when not looking after my daughters. But it snowballed and today I dedicate all my time to this craft. It's an enormous satisfaction when someone asks me to make a piece and I can see the happiness on her face. My designs are an expression of art and I need to feel inspired the entire time so that each one comes out the way I want it to.'
