A native Ecuadorian and master silversmith, Nelly Sanchez Loor, or “Betty”, creates wonderful silver and stone jewelry that is the definition of handmade. Her process starts with raw silver which she melts down and forms into settings for her stones. She handpicks the stones for her work and only her vision brings it to life once it is set into sterling. Each piece of silver is hand stamped “ECUADOR N.S. 925” (the origin, her initials, and the quality of silver).
We have worked with Betty for as long as we can remember. She has greatly contributed to Scarlett Begonia over the years. Her jewelry is always available in our store. We look forward to seeing what new designs she has each time we visit.
