I sold this pair of earrings yesterday in Dawanda. They're going to Switzerland...thanks Raquel!

Today's my first day as a blogger


Bienvenidos! Welcome! Bienvenue! Benvenuti! Willkommen! Benvinguts! Velkommen! Aloha! Bem-vindos!
Welcome to Alida Joya's blog. I'm Alida. Joyas is not my last name, but is spanish for jewelry. I was born and I live in Peru...and if you hadn't guessed yet, I make jewelry. I'm focused in offering handmade silver designs in the best quality. I also like using natural stones to add color to the pieces.

So now you're maybe wondering..."do peruvians speak english?". Our mother tongue is spanish, but some of us speak english too because we learned it at school or somewhere else. "If she speaks spanish why is she posting in english?". Well, I'm currently offering my products at Etsy and Dawanda ( and and its not easy to sell in these places, as easy as it may seem, because there are tons of talented artists. So I decided to create a blog for people in other countries to get to know me and my work. This is why I post in english. If you speak spanish, me avisas!

I'll be posting news and pics regulary so stay tuned. Hope to hear from you soon and thanks for stopping by!!! Let me know if you have any comments or questions.
