Meet Jorge

Jorge Luis is a silversmith, in a small rural village of Mexico.

His story of change is more a story of remaining the same, or staying put.

Jorge is a member of the jewellery making co-operative, Unión Progresista Artesanal (UPA). UPA creates beautiful, handcrafted jewellery which we sell in our stores here in New Zealand.
