Introducing Ana Maria Sanchez of Amaria

The designer behind Amaria is Ana Maria Sanchez. Born to Paraguayan parents, Ana Maria was raised in Houston, Texas. As a child, Ana Maria was impressed by her family’s South American style. She was taught the importance of style and an appreciation for all things handcrafted at an early age. Her mother taught her that women must always respect and adorn their bodies.

Ana Maria studied the native lace making in Paraguay called nanduti which means spider web. Her logo incorporates the nanduti. She pursued her love for design, studying fashion design and merchandising. The pursuit of luxurious, impeccably made designs fine tuned her eye for the exquisite.
Her family and friends encouraged her to pursue her longtime dream of creating her own designs. In 2007, Ana Maria started her own company. She is currently designing feminine, delicate, jewelry in sterling silver and 14 karat gold fill. Her designs catch and intrigue the eye.

Ana Maria, awesome job! If you are another Artisan, study how she has set this up, to show most of it in one screen. Check out her tags(labels), to help find your feature later. Jo
