"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."
Thank you so much for the beautiful piece of jewelry! Your work is absolutely gorgeous!
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!
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.
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.
Very beautiful, and very unique. Just like the picture.
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.
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!
I just receive the necklance from Cesar Godoy. High quality and beautiful bag. Good work!
