Chess Set

This AMAZING chess set took Nacho two years to make. It is his interpretation of a mythological Aztec battle between two divine forces. The king is Quetzalcoatl -representing the sun and the queen is Tezcatlipoca representing the moon.

All the silver that you see is 950 and there are over 4 kilos of silver alone in this set. When not playing or displaying this chess set the pieces can be stored in the wooden box as the silver playing surface is actually a lid that opens.

Scorpion Key Chain

Nacho made this cool scorpion keychain for a friend of mine. I think that it would look cool with the keys inside the pants pocket and then the scorpion left to dangle outside of the pocket. I especially love the chain - once again - all handmade by Nacho !!!
