About Andrea Tello

About Andrea Tello

She sits with a beautiful silver filigree necklace on a navy blue velvet cushion on her workbench and moves the delicate links carefully into position before beginning to decorate the beautiful pendant. Andrea Tello has been working on this stunning piece of jewellery all day – oblivious of the passing hours and the people stopping awhile to watch her as she works.... Andrea Tello is a highly gifted young filigree jeweller who is in fact the fourth generation of her family to continue the family tradition of creating stunning and exquisite pieces of jewellery that have a timeless elegance. Andrea works with gold silver and other metals and remembers fondly how she learned her craft by spending hours watching her grandfather whilst he worked. 'My grandfather encouraged me to enjoy my work and to open my heart to my creativity'. It was through him that she learned how jewellery can capture the history, culture and rich heritage of the Andean culture in Ecuador and she learned about her own Andean roots. Her work is inspired by the rich and highly symbolic patterns found in the clothing worn by Andean women. She feels that her work helps to conserve the legacy and the spirit of the Andean culture and helps to keep it very much alive. In the last five years, Andrea Tello has exhibited in such places as Tokyo and Paris where her stylish work has been much acclaimed and the importance of her work has been recognised by UNESCO. Young and highly talented, Andrea Tello is definitely a name to watch out for....
