Sylvia Mecozzi from Brasil wearing the beautiful Peacock Pendant and Brooch made by Nacho Gomez. I love how she pinned it to the center point of the dress that she is wearing. She has such great style and excellent taste in jewelry if I do say so myself. She really appreciates the handmade aspect of this piece. And of course it looks fantastic on her!

Nacho made this beautiful piece as part of a jewelry series on owls. The silver is 950 purity and the piece functions as both a pendant and a brooch. Each feather in the tail and body of the owl is hinged in the back which gives it great movement. The owl is holding a "branch" in its talons which is actually a piece of coral. The head and top wings of the owl is given form and texture by using the technique of repousse and chasing. They are hollow which allows the piece to be much lighter than it would be if it were made in the lost waxing technique. The feathers are all hand hammered individually which allows the wearer to see the true hand of the artist. Once again Nacho does not dissapoint -he has such an eye for detail !

Another scorpion bracelet made by Nacho - this time with a gorgeous Tiger Eye gemstone as the focal point. Tiger Eye represents optimism, peacefulness and clarity. This is not a bracelet to be worn out in public if you don't like receiving attention. Truly stunning- a powerful piece !
Nacho made this bracelet as a custom order for a friend of mine who owns a restaurant in Austin. It's called Ranch 616 and if you've never eaten there you don't know what you are missing! The sign for the restaurant is a rattlesnake that spells out its name, hence the concept that Nacho worked with to complete this very special piece.
