"Hi, my name is Guillermo. I was born in Jaen, Spain. My passion is traveling and, when I was 16, I left my home and started traveling all over Europe. It was great. I saw great places and lived day by day. I stopped in the villages I liked, I worked at some simple jobs and I slept under the stars.
"During my travels, I met an Italian girl. We got married and moved together to Mexico. Since that time I have been living here and I love it. By chance, in 1985, we went to Taxco and I met a silversmith who opened the doors of his workshop to me. I learned everything.
I get my inspiration from everything that surrounds me and, obviously, from all my traveling. I love natural stones. I cut them and do everything myself. I love doing this, and my favorite stone is the turquoise.
"The biggest gift life gave me are my four children. In children, you see real love. They teach you how to love, they accept you and, with them, you can remember the real meaning of love.
"I enjoy life and I love being alive. I often think about the equality of human beings – despite the little differences, it is so important to always remember it. I feel happy when people like my designs. I love the idea that my jewelry becomes a part of yourself when you wear it."
