About the Artist

Artist Jose Muenala Anguaya employs traditional indigenous techniques with contemporary influences to create art that conveys a sense of profound simplicity and reflects his superb attention to detail. His intricate sterling work enhances the beauty of the natural stones he incorporates into each design.
Growing up under wide Andean skies, subtleties of color and verdant mountainsides informed his creative self. This vision of nature is carried through in all his work.
Inspired to continue the jewelry tradition that was passed down to him, he fluidly integrates his experiences as musician, flute maker, and traditional farmer living close to the land to form a body of work that reflects his deep regard for nature and respect for the art he has inherited.
