Rumi Sumaq means “beautiful stones” in Quechua, the indigenous language of Peru.
BRAG ALERT Coco was recently nominated for a prestigious NICHE Award for his fiber macrame necklace Primavera Rising.
Rumi Sumaq is the finest example of artisan-made craft. From the design inspiration, to choice of materials, to the technical skill, to the finished piece; the artist is present and imbuing the work with himself. The works made by Coco are undeniably beautiful, comfortably wearable, and perfectly handmade. Paula Lewis, Board Member of The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen
There are craftsmen who make things with well-trained hands, and there are artists who make beauty with gifted, divine eyes. Coco towers among the latter. Should anyone want physical evidence that something can be greater than the sum of its parts, she needs only to see, touch and wear a Rumi Sumaq artifact. Charles Bechtel, artist & novelist
Everyone should know of your work. I am not much of a jewelry person, but the first time I saw your work I thought, ‘If I had the money I’d buy every piece you made and wear a different piece everyday.’ It is the most beautiful and outstanding work of creativity and artisan craftsmanship I’ve ever seen. I have forwarded your website to others who have experienced the same reaction. Sheri, customer
