"I love the process of making jewellery, and particularly getting to teach others!"
Lizet is part of the team at Hope Jewellery, a group of incredibly talented women we work with in Peru. She lives in Lima with her husband and together they have a daughter called Priyanka and a dog named Ginger—both of whom are 4! For Lizet, what she enjoys the most about making jewellery is being able to pass on the techniques that she has learned to others. She is also a pro polisher whose ability to make brass so shiny you can see your face in it has made her handiwork very easy to spot when the orders come in! Hope Jewellery Project offers part time, fairly-paid work for women living in some of the poorest shanty towns in Lima, Peru. By working with this project, women such as Lizet are able to earn enough to provide an education for their children and secure a better future for their families.
