  • Alpaca jewelry is made from alpaca, an alloy often used to replace silver. Alpaca consists of 55 percent copper, 20 percent nickel, 20 percent zinc and 5 percent tin. Alpaca is also referred to as nickel, nickel-copper plating or most commonly, alpaca silver. Alpaca jewelry is made from this alpaca alloy. Because the alloy resembles silver in looks and is less expensive, alpaca silver is a popular material used in jewelry production. Alpaca jewelry is easy to care for as it does not tarnish as easily or as deeply as sterling silver and is easier to clean. Plated with sterling silver, alpaca jewelry is both durable and beautiful, making it a high quality product.

Originally interested in painting, Edwin dabbled in the techniques and the beautifully transparent palette of water colors which have carried over into his work as a jewelry maker.</p>
