Nancy took many courses to learn the art of jewelry but fell in love with filigree. The delicate curvilinear lines of this unique style of silverwork are part of the cultural heritage of Northern Peru.

Nancy teaches filigree to her employees and others who seek her out asking to be taught this art.
