Who is Charis?

Hola! I'm Charis and I created the Charisma Bolivia handmade jewelry brand. I own BoliviaBella.com and I personally designed each of the pieces you'll see in our shop. I use locally available gems and stones, and work with Bolivian jewelry artisans to handcraft each item. Each piece is one-of-a-kind! I then travel to my other home, in the U.S.A., where I begin the process of photographing each piece and making it available to you online. All of our unique handmade jewelry ships worldwide from California.

The artisans I work with are self-employed and paid fair, above-average wages. You can feel comfortable knowing that when you purchase Charisma Bolivia handmade jewelry, you are helping to improve the living conditions of a Bolivian family. With your order, you will receive a card with the story of the artisan who made your item. Click here to read the full story about why I created Charisma Bolivia. I hope you will enjoy wearing our jewelry as much as we love creating it for you. Feel free to contact me.

Charisma stems from the Greek word χάρις (Charis) which means "charity" or "a gift given in grace" (freely). Charis was the youngest of three Greek goddesses called the "Charities", also known as the "Graces". She was the goddess of beauty and adornment. It is said she had a magical appeal. From her name stems the word Charisma, defined as a "special magnetic charm or appeal" or "a special quality that makes a person capable of inspiring others". Our pieces are created to accent your natural charm.
