Armando joined Andean Collection in 2011 and is our lead ring-maker. Armando comes from a family of carpenters, and his approach to design is both skilled and highly creative. He enjoys working with Andean Collection because it inspires him to dream up new ring designs each fashion season. Armando’s goal is to continue pushing the boundaries of ring design with new shapes and sustainable materials. In addition to experimenting with design and materials, he is in works to make his workshop and surrounding property a destination for eco-tourists. Armando’s son is currently attending theatre school.
