Marianella Orjuela Castro was born in Bogota , Colombia . She finished High School in Candelaria High School in Bogota . She was graduated with a degree in Economy at the Javeriana University . She worked as a Financial and Administrative Director at a prestigious international Engineering Company.

In 1999 she moved to San Jose , Costa Rica . Living there she opened a little store that sold cardigans and sweaters, imported from Colombia , during this time she came with the idea to design necklaces that match with the cardigans and sweaters.

Her creations were very well accepted by the Costa Rican women, then she decided to found Acanto Jewelry in August 2001, with a great success she distributed the necklaces in about 45 stores around the country.

Since September 2004, Acanto Jewelry moved its main workshop to Bogota Colombia . At the present time Marianella is working with distributors from Costa Rica , Panama and Canada . She is trying to get a better position in the Colombian market, and keeps looking for more distributors overseas.
