This piece is inspired by Antonio Pineda- yet another Taxco Master Designer/Metalsmith. Both Nacho and his father Filliberto made jewelry for Pineda...The craftsmanship on this piece is really unbelievable !

This is a very short introduction to Manuel Igancio Gomez Aviles or "Nacho " as he is affectionately known to his friends. He has been working with metal -(Some 14 kt gold but mostly silver ) since the tender age of 6 . He learned his skills by working as an apprentice in different workshops and also learning from his father, Filliberto Gomez. Nacho is an award winning artist many times over. Throughout the years he has created many interesting collections of jewelry as well as sculptures that have gained him attention and respect throughout his country Mexico; as well as on an international level. When admiring one of his designs or wearing it around your neck or wrist you know that you are experiencing a truly collectible artwork.
