b>Story Behind the Art:
From the time she was a child Ana Cristina Llapa spent most of her time drawing. 'I had always wanted to learn jewelry design, and I finally took a two year course. Then I followed my husband, who traveled frequently to Bogota. There I gained experience in jewelry workshops and learned practically every technique. It was wonderful. Each stone inspires my designs. I love to get feedback on my designs, and to know that people feel better when they see and wear them.'
