Artistic Inspirations

I love the style of these bracelets. Nacho likes to play with the high brilliance of the reflection of the metal with light and these are real eye-catchers !This particular line of jewelry is inspired by geometric shapes and there will be many more pieces to come in the future .The bracelet with stones shown here is full of a fantastic hue of garnet stones. All three pieces are very elegant , timeless and just have a classic design !

Horned Lizard-Toad-Frog Bracelet

TCU fans beware - This might be the coolest thing a true TCU fan could own...
Nacho and I designed this especially to share with fans like you !
This piece was fabricated in @36 hours after a careful study of pages of photos that had been researched about this elusive creature. Nacho got really excited about the project and missed a full nights sleep while working on it...just another example of how Nacho puts his heart and soul into every last handmade detail.

Here is some wikepedia info I found about this interesting creature :
Horned lizards are a genus of the Phrynosomatidae family of lizards. The horned lizard is popularly called a "horned toad," "horny toad", or "horned frog," but it is neither a toad nor a frog. The popular names come from the lizard's rounded body and blunt snout, which make it resemble a toad or frog. (Phrynosoma literally means "toad-bodied.") The spines on its back and sides are made from modified scales, whereas the horns on the heads are true horns (i.e. they have a horny core). There are 14 species of horned lizards in North America, 8 of which are native to the United States. The largest-bodied and most widely distributed of the U.S. species is the Texas horned lizard .

Crocodile Bracelet and Necklace

The crocodile necklace and bracelet look good with just about any outfit and for just about any occasion. They could be worn with your jeans for a daytime adventure -or even dressed up for a special occasion in the evening . Your choice - Timeless and Classic !

Armadillo Bracelet

Aaaaaah the armadillo bracelet- Absolutely adorable! This little guy is just full of personality and people are amazed when they see how he opens and closes. The end of his tail goes into his mouth for the clasp and he has beautiful garnet eyes!
His tail is a series of hinged joints so he is very flexible and I'm crazy about the way he wraps around the wrist. I won't name names but one of our local news anchors fell in love with him the minute she saw him and bought one for herself as well as another for a friend! Very popular this little armadillo!

Chameleon Bracelet and Necklace

The chameleon is probably one of my favorites of Nacho's pieces- although I must say it is very hard to choose. He has a swirled tongue, malachite eyes and a curled tail. He has a small "mohawk" -much smaller than that of the iguana but it makes him somewhat "fierce" as well. I sold the first one right off of my wrist and missed him terribly until Nacho was able to replace him for me ! I wonder who the next lucky soul will be to wear this little critter on their wrist or neck and suffer from endless compliments !

Mermaid Necklace

This mermaid or "Sirena" as she is known in Spanish appears to be swimming around your neck when you place her there .
She is just another example of Nacho's attention to detail and his finesse with repousse tools. Each scale in her fins and the hair cascading down her back are hammered individually lending her that "one-of-a kind" look that really stands out in this world of commercially made products .
