This cooperative in Peru is located just outside the capital city, Lima. They specialize in sterling silver jewelry, a difficult field for women artisans to enter as silver work is traditionally a male domain. They make *every* little piece by hand: right down to the tiny little earring backs. They're exceptional craftspeople, for sure!
