Meet the artisans behind our Jewellery!
We personally travel toin Mexico and buy our silver jewellery directly from small family businesses and independent artisans and designers, we look for originality and quality and handpick each piece of handmade silver jewellery ourselves. Over the years we have established good relationships with several businesses and designers, who we continue to return to as we can rely upon them to persistently develop new, unusual and original designs that are consistently well made.
Two our favourite designers that we work with are Alon Diller and Guillermo Arregui. They both produce high quality handmade and innovative jewellery and invest a lot of time, thought and energy into their designs which is evident in their final creations.
A self-trained jewellery and graduated artist from the school of arts in Taxco. Alon utilises a variety of designs in his jewellery and is influenced by styles of a contemporary nature as well as those based on antique design. (A beautiful example of this antique influence is the very popular). Alon combines silver, 18k gold and semi precious stones in different techniques in order to achieve elegance and beauty.
Guillermo originates from Spain and since childhood has been interested in design, nature and comics. When 19 he developed a passion for travel and went to Mexico. In Taxco he became interested in metalwork and went on to study for four years with metalsmiths at the Artes Pasticas School to sharpen his craftsmanship. In 1994 he became a permanent resident of Taxco and developed a wholesale business. Guillermo says the aim of his business is to develop products of high quality with reasonable prices. This provides a fair price for the silversmith as well as the customer.
Guillermo utilises a great variety of techniques and is constantly researching new ideas. Most of his ideas come from nature, dreams and everyday activities. For example, observing a cinnamon stick may lead to a new line!
