"Hello! How are you?
"My name is Citlal Castillo and I come from the city of Taxco, and belong to a family of pioneers in silver production. My uncles were designers who worked with William Spratling, credited with establishing the town's first silver jewelry workshop in 1931. And so I've been close to this wonderful craft all my life.
"I began to design jewelry about the time I was at university, studying Fashion Marketing. As time went by, I became better known. Today people seek out my designs, as I've always tried to be at the vanguard of fashion with original top quality products.
"The creative process in my workshop goes hand in hand with my clients. We work together as a team, creating designs according to their needs and current market trends.
"I work in all common silver crafting techniques, beginning with the melting of the granules and continuing with laminates, lost wax, etc. After adding the fine details by hand, we set the gems, when required, to create the final design. Each one is crafted with a lot of love."
