"I enjoy life and I love being alive… I feel happy when people like my designs. I love the idea that my jewelry becomes a part of yourself when you wear it."
"Hi, my name is Guillermo. I was born in Jaen, Spain. My passion is traveling and, when I was 16, I left my home and started traveling all over Europe. It was great. I saw great places and lived day by day. I stopped in the villages I liked, I worked at some simple jobs and I slept under the stars.
"During my travels, I met an Italian girl. We got married and moved together to Mexico. Since that time I have been living here and I love it. By chance, in 1985, we went to Taxco and I met a silversmith who opened the doors of his workshop to me. I learned everything.
I get my inspiration from everything that surrounds me and, obviously, from all my traveling. I love natural stones. I cut them and do everything myself. I love doing this, and my favorite stone is the turquoise.
"The biggest gift life gave me are my four children. In children, you see real love. They teach you how to love, they accept you and, with them, you can remember the real meaning of love.
"I enjoy life and I love being alive. I often think about the equality of human beings – despite the little differences, it is so important to always remember it. I feel happy when people like my designs. I love the idea that my jewelry becomes a part of yourself when you wear it."

Rec'd your cufflinks the other day. Excellent work! I actually swapped out the pair I had on during the day with yours. Happy Holidays!
I just received my ""Hypnotize"" earrings from you and am very happy with them. Like all your other jewelry I've purchased they are unusual and very well made. These are smaller than I usually wear, but are so lovely I decided to try something different. I'm glad I did. Thank you once again for sharing your vision and talent with me.
Hello Guillermo, I am not used to buy stuff on the internet, but I really liked your designs, so I decided to give it a try. I just purchased two sets of earrings from your collection: Hypnotyze and Hopeful Nightingale. Both sets are beautiful, true to their online description and very well made. I am really enjoying wearing them and I am already looking at some of your other peaces. Thank you.
Thank you so much! Today I received your ""Dragonfly Mystery"" dangle earrings and they are so beautiful. I already own two other sets of Dragonfly earrings, but these, that you made, are far the best and I know I'll be wearing them a lot.
I bought Turquoise earrings, 'Droplet from the Sea' an Copper dangle earrings, 'Hummingbird Haven' I love both pairs. I have just started wearing dangle earrings. I love the size and shape of both pairs. Also, the silver work is very well done.
Guillermo I've been remiss in not writing you you about your wonderful earrings ""Cosmic Chic"" which I purchased some time ago. Whenever I want to wear an earring that just pops I go for these.

Thank you for joining Novica so your incredible designs and craftsmanship are available to a wide audience.

Gorgeous bracelet! I received your Taxco Harmony bracelet and cannot tell you how it took my breath away when I opened it! Perfect in every way, beautiful design, unique and an added bonus that all five gem stones resemble birthstones of my family! It will be my everyday bracelet, and yes it does become a part of yourself when wearing it! Thank you Novica for upgrading my shipping so I could receive it earlier than expected!

I decided to buy a new wedding ring for my husband and I picked his Structures ring. I received it very fast and it was perfect. Exactly what I ordered. Thank you Guillermo now my husband has a new beautiful wedding ring. Love Novica.
I have just received my silver turquoise ring and I absolutely love it. It is a beautiful and simple design that makes the amazing stone shimmer with light. I am sitting in cold and snowy Boston and looking at the ring makes me think of Summer and the ocean. Thank you for a beautiful piece, I will enjoy it for many years to come.

I purchased Turning Leaves necklace for my daughter-in-law and it is gorgeous! It is so nice to have something so unique to give. The presentation gift wrap is lovely as well. I would definitely recommend the artistry of Guillermo Arregui.
Simple, yet elegant design. I like the lean lines and comfortable fit. Spiritually, I love how it makes me feel as if I have a guardian companion walking beside me as I travel my path in life. Thanks, Guillermo!
I purchased the ""Along the Way"" pendant. Beautiful piece! Bail is big but narrow; -most- of my chains/cords fit through. I love it best on a cord! It's a calming piece to wear... the design, for me, is the endless chase of day and night. Gives me perspective and peace when life becomes difficult. Thank you, Guillermo, for sharing your art with all of us! Many blessings to you and your family!
For my best friend's birthday I bought her a black and tan blouse from Jariya Kakaew and your lovely sterling silver ""Salis"" necklace. She loved it all - and said your necklace was just stunning. So for Christmas I'll have to get her the earrings! Thank you so much. Margi
Hi Guillermo, Just received my turquoise earrings & ring. They are gorgeous! Will defintely be looking to purchase more of your pieces soon. Thank You.
Hi Guillermo, I've ordered your Amber dangle earrings ""Sunbeam"" and they are absolutely stunning. I've ordered them as a gift for my daughter-in-law and she absolutely loves them! The workmanship of your earrings is excellent and the design is very unique and beautiful. I just looked to see if you have a matching pendant (for her birthday) but didn't see one. I will keep on checking your site on Novica. Thank you so much for such a beautiful piece of art! Have a very happy, healthy, prosperous New Year! Christine
I purchased the bracelet ""Duet"" for its simplicity and elegance. When I recieved it in the mail I absolutely fell in love with it! Great craftsmanship and quality!
Hello Guillermo, I love the earrings I bought - the ones called ""Nature"". The three different colours and finishes makes them different and their shape is very elegant. I enjoy wearing them.
I recently purchased the ""Caribbean Mosaic"" ring and fell in love with it from the moment I first viewed it in the box. It is simply an exquisite piece that I'm glad to now have as part of my jewelry wardrobe.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous earrings! They are big and generously full, in both look and feel! I also ordered the turquoise ring, GORGEOUS too ! It is big bold, and the stone is interesting and huge! The way they arrived wrapped with a bow, and made it seem as if I got a present! I also love the presentation boxes, they are perfect for storing the jewelry after I wear it. Muchimas Gracias!
I just bought your Shimmering Leaves earring set for my daughter, she absolutely loves them. Great workmanship, very impressed. Thanks.

Looked just like the picture. Sea Turtles are a favorite symbol of mine and the pendant I purchased does the creature proud! It's more than I expected - and I'm sure my significant other will be very happy with it. The piece is artistically abstract with just enough detail to be clear in what it is from all distances. I love it and will definitely keep you on my Artist list. The packaging was also very nice. Thankyou very much! I highly recommend you to future visitors.
I received a pair of earing from you you. THey to me are small but very beautiful sort of rough looking but I like that sort of thing. I don't go for these big round dangle earrings. I am 70 years old. Maybe once in a great while I will wear a pair for dress but very rare, yours are going into my ears as soon as I get to feeling better. I have been very sick for over a month now and I am so very tired of it. But I will bare it with the help of God and prayers. Thank you for the earing. I love them. Rose Marie

This artist has an amazing vision. The piece I purchased is always with me. It embodies my intent and aspirations to an uncanny degree. Very beautiful as well. Thanks very much. Rico
Guillermo's set of earrings could not have been more beautiful. Ready for Christmas Day, my mother was surprised by the beautiful gift wrapping and Novico Mexico's personalized card that came with it. The earrings are so precious! Thank you, Guillermo. We hope you'll have a blessed year.
