For Motché, Carole Fraresso takes on the clean lines and abstract patterns of the pre-Columbian Peruvian civilization of Chimús. This spectacular pair of XXL creoles is a replica of a piece dating from 1000 – 1470 A.D. It was handcrafted by Armando, one of the few goldsmiths to master the gold leaf technique in which the Mochicas excelled.

 

An archeo-metallurgist and researcher associated with the Larco Museum in Lima, Carole Fraresso highlights the virtuosity of Peruvian goldsmiths and keeps alive the know-how of the pre-Columbian era. She has also developed an exclusive jewelry journey in Peru: with her, you will explore museum collections, sites and you will meet anthropologists, historians, etc. Find out more from the TFJP shop.
