Handcrafted gemstone jewelry from artisan Nilson di Assis at UnoAllaVolta.com Born in one of Rioís most dangerous slums, Nilson dropped out of school at age 15 to help support his family. He first found work in a leather-goods workshop and later apprenticed with a brass artisan. Determined to give his daughter opportunities he didnít have, Nilson began handcrafting jewelry and handbags from leftover scraps at the workshop. With the help of Suzy of Connecticut, Nilson now brings his rich organic designs to the larger world, and is able to create a sustainable living for himself and many of his townspeople.
