like a first look at machu picchu, this necklace inspires one word: wow. you put on this daring necklace, and suddenly, you're the best dressed woman in the room. utterly unique and stunningly designed, the caprichosa adds a sultry look to any outfit. beautiful against a black dress, wear as a choker with a tight bun, or long and loose with curly waves.
My name is paola delgado, and i started mujus in 2011 after working for years on wall street, with the desire to do something more fulfilling and philanthropic.
with that in mind, i put my new york life on hold to travel peru in search of inspiration. in my travels, i discovered communities who use amazonian seeds to handmake beautiful jewelry and studied with these artisans for months to learn all i could. our partnership became the birth of mujus, a name that means 'seed' in quechua, the ancient language of peru.
mujus prides itself in using only sustainable materials of the highest quality, and providing educational opportunities, healthcare benefits and fair trade wages to our wonderful artisans.
i hope you enjoy this small piece of my history.
