Adrian Nunez

His story

Approximately 30 years ago, Adrian's parents came to the canton of Otavalo selling gold and silver jewelry - one of the first jewelry sellers in the canton.  Today, Adrian follows in his father's footsteps and has improved his work, adding stone inlays to his designs.  He believes that his quality of work is what differentiates himself from other jewelers. 

Adrian distributes his jewelry across North America and Europe.  Popular designs include Spondylus shell, mother of pearl, turquoise, onyx, and other precious and semi-precious stones.
