The wide wings of a beautiful butterfly are captured in sterling silver, handcrafted with marvelous filigree openwork. Peru's Nancy Quispe, who works in the hope of opening a school for young artisans, designs this accessory.
In the Andes, the Land of the Four Corners, mountains are sacred. So is culture. The Nazca lines, the Wari glyphs, the Quipu knots and the complex multi-colored textiles of the Incas are all recorded and live on the work of contemporary Peruvian artisans.
