Meet the artist
Updated: May 7, 2022
My name is Kelly Caballero Alvarez, I'm a 25 year old January Capricorn, Art History and Language student with a strong passion for museology and stones. I live in the Caribbean star, Puerto Rico.
My jewelry making journey started when I was 7 years old. My mother opened a bead supply shop at a small town back in 2003. As a small business owner daughter I had to help my mom at the shop on workshops and so I started to learn. For personal reasons the shop closed in 2006 but I kept making jewelry with my mother. We used to go to festivals and pop ups.
I started to make jewelry with a different style and personality. I used to sell my creations at the university halls, then on pop ups. I dream some day I can open Royalcottoncandy on a small old building at the Capital Old San Juan. Let's follow and wear our dreams.
