"Hello! How are you?
"My name is Citlal Castillo and I come from the city of Taxco, and belong to a family of pioneers in silver production. My uncles were designers who worked with William Spratling, credited with establishing the town's first silver jewelry workshop in 1931. And so I've been close to this wonderful craft all my life.
"I began to design jewelry about the time I was at university, studying Fashion Marketing. As time went by, I became better known. Today people seek out my designs, as I've always tried to be at the vanguard of fashion with original top quality products.
"The creative process in my workshop goes hand in hand with my clients. We work together as a team, creating designs according to their needs and current market trends.
"I work in all common silver crafting techniques, beginning with the melting of the granules and continuing with laminates, lost wax, etc. After adding the fine details by hand, we set the gems, when required, to create the final design. Each one is crafted with a lot of love."
Once reserved for the exclusive use of royals, carnelian's bright glow is believed to bring energy and a sense of humor. Roberto Salvato contrasts the gem's natural fiery glow with the cool sheen of silver featuring hand hammered textures.
Plants send out new leaves and blossoms in a joyous declaration of love. Depicted in silver, they clasp bright carnelians in their argent embrace. Gianluca Anzani creates elegant earrings that celebrate romance.
Adapting a motif from pre-Hispanic Mexico, Gianluca Anzani creates an Aztec flower. Crowned by glowing carnelian, the blossoms dance gracefully with every movement. The sterling silver shapes are cut out by hand, thus size could vary slightly. ....read more
