Peruvian Markets & Jewellery


Over the Summer I spent 6 weeks in Peru travelling and doing volunteer work at an orphanage. One of the things that I enjoyed the most was browsing the amazing markets. Everywhere we went we found places to shop from giant handy-craft markets to small pop-up stall at the top of the Colca Canyon, there shop keepers often sat knitted a hat or making jewellery as you browsed! They all offered amazing hand-made products from jumpers to pottery, everything in between and so much more. It's safe to say that we went a bit over the top when it came to shopping! But I maintain that I was half way around the world and it was probably the only time I'd ever be able to buy such products. 
I particularly loved the jewellery because of the beautiful natural stones they used to make them. Some of the jewellery i bought included a short chained necklace, for which I bought 3 different pendants. My favourite pendant is the turquoise one; I love the colour and the fact that the stone comes from Machu Picchu! I also bought a tooth necklace and a pair of chandelier earrings featuring Inca symbols and icons. Although this is only a small glimpse of what I brought back with me!
Here are some photos of the markets we visited in Peru (that is my sister and my cousin in the photos, I was behind the lens)
