The Spanish translation for caterpillar is oruga. Nacho has designed this "oruga" to crawl onto a leaf and morph into a butterfly for the clasp !
This amazingly flexible bracelet has 17 moveable joints and looks and feels like a true one of a kind work of art. Each joint has 2 mounted malachite stones but ends with two onyx stones near the end of the caterpillar. This makes for a total count of 36 stones ! Gorgeous !
This adorable Sea Horse just seems to have a really cute personality! I love his expression. His eyes are set with 3mm Malachite Stones and where his tail meets the back of his head is a box clasp. Any fan of the sea can surely appreciate these special creatures! For a quick link to read more about the seahorse check out this link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seahorse

How cool is this shrimp bracelet ? Nacho won the 2008 Hugo Salinas Price Competition Award ( 1st Place )with this very original and labor intensive masterpiece. The Hugo Salinas is a competition that Nacho has entered for many years- an annual and very prestigious national silver contest in Mexico City and he has always walked away with a prize !
Truly a work of art! Can you imagine the fun to be had wearing this in New Orleans at Jazzfest? No doubt that most people would give your wrist a second glance so don't even think about wearing it unless you don't mind having a real conversation starter attached to your body !
This bracelet weighs a hefty 158 grams, has playful movable onyx eyes and curls and uncurls to hug your wrist. The clasp is a box clasp where the tail meets just underneath the front legs with a 3mm malachite stone for the clasps "push button ".
