March 23, 2015 - Nice quality and setting. Size was okay. I thought it would be slightly larger, but I do like the pendant. Only thing I would add is that the stone doesn't really look like an opal.

June 4, 2013 - Really beautiful opal pendant. Very well made, attractive, gorgeous shades of aqua and green. Nice buy. I wish the clasp on the chain was of better quality. I gave a 5 rating for pendant only.

May 20, 2013 - I love the rich color of this pendant. I ordered the pendant only as I have several necklaces of varying lengths to wear it with. It is exactly as described. It reminds me of a rich turquoise. Mine is darker and has fewer markings than the one shown - nature doesn't make duplicates and I love mine.

Artisan: Alvaro Carreno

Artisan Alvaro Carreno

Up in the steep hills overlooking the heart of Cuzco, Peru, you will find the artisan quarter of San Blas at over 11,000 feet (3,400 meters) above sea level. Dominated by the Iglesia de San Blas, which features an inspiring cedar pulpit carved from a single tree trunk and is the oldest parish church in Cuzco, narrow, twisting streets snake off throughout the neighborhood, packed with small galleries and craft workshops. It is here in this rarefied atmosphere of artistry and tradition that Alvaro Carreno crafts some of the most distinctive jewelry in the Andes.

Award-winning Peruvian artisan Alvaro Carreno maintains a unique jewelry-crafting style that produces some of Peru's most innovative, yet time-honored, designs. Working from his shop in the San Blas artist neighborhood of Cuzco, his jewelry incorporates ancient Incan design elements brought into modern-day focus. His jewelry tends to incorporate precious and semi-precious stones set into unique sterling silver settings, including hammered and his signature "rolled" designs.
