"My greatest source of inspiration are all the different pre-Hispanic cultures. However, my aim is to give them a more contemporary style."
"My name is Cesar Godoy and I was born in the state of Jalisco in 1971. I used love to paint when I was little boy, and when I was 15 years I used to visit a silversmith's workshop where I would spend hours watching people at work and learning some of their techniques. I especially enjoyed practicing lost wax techniques. Years later, my father, brothers and I, we decided to start our own silversmith workshop. It was a place for me to keep training with lost wax techniques and where I could develop my own designs.
"By the time I was 24 years old I had designed several collections and they seemed to find a great acceptance in the general public. At that time, I enrolled in some sculpting classes, as well as in the use of different materials and techniques.
"My effort is constant, and these days I am already working on new collections that range from ethnic to vanguard styles.
"My greatest source of inspiration are all the different pre-Hispanic cultures. However, my aim is to give them a more contemporary style. My hope is that people from around the world can get to appreciate our culture through a piece of jewelry."
I just receive the necklance from Cesar Godoy. High quality and beautiful bag. Good work!
I received two pairs of earrings today, Heron Freedom and Turtle Voyage. They are absolutely things of beauty! I love the craftsmanship. Just gorgeous. They also came in beautiful jewelry boxes. Thanks so much Cesar!
Absolutely loved the turtle voyage earrings. I bought them as a present and can't wait to give them. It will make my girlfriend's day.
Very beautiful, and very unique. Just like the picture.
Dear Cesar, thank you for the earrings 'Bubbling Hearts'. They are exactly as pictured, only nicer! I love heart shaped earrings, but they can be a little bit too 'cutesy'. Your design is clever, flattering and not too 'cutesy' at all. I think these earrings would look great on a woman of any age, so bravo to you for understanding how to complement women's beauty with a deceptively simple design. The earrings are subtle but they hint at a style that is a bit different and original, bold and artistic. I think you have really translated the spirit of Mexican art - a love of beautiful, intensely significant shapes and an appreciation of light and dark, depth and relief - into something modern and universally appealing.
Cesar, I received my silver Wind Lord Necklace on a leather cord. I really like your design and it does create the feeling of the power of the wind. I think that this necklace can be worn by either a man or a woman. I purchased it for myself. Thank you for your wonderful work.
I received my silver shell spiral today and the pendant was even more beautiful and finally crafted than I had expected. I am very pleased. The spiral reflects both pre- Hispanic culture and my Buddhist faith of no beginning and no end. The little bag and cards were a professional gouch. The ocean scene reminds me of Mazatlan where I had a house in the Old Town for awhile. Good memories. Thank you!
