Christmas Shopping for your loved ones? Here is one inexpensive semi precious stone alternative compared to those plastic trinkets you buy in the malls around the metro:
These gorgeous necklaces, earrings, bracelets and anklets are hand-made from Alpaca silver* with mostly genuine and simulated semi-precious stones and/or murano-style glass beads. These are adorned with any of the following – cat’s eye beads, glass beads, silver seed beads, gemstone nuggets, bamboo, curled wire, native purl and silver points and are crafted by skilled artisans in Peru.
*Alpaca Silver is a lightweight alloy, a mixture of copper, nickel, zinc, and iron, imitating silver, with an off tone that does not rust or tarnish even when polished.* Know more via http://tikanchay.multiply.com
