Mexico Artist: Emilia Castillo
Daughter of the famous Mexican silversmith, Antonio Castillo, home décor and jewelry designer Emilia Castillo has a following and reputation that spans the globe.
As a child growing up in Taxco, Mexico, master silversmiths in her family’s legendary workshop surrounded Emilia. She has since developed a patented technique of fusing pure silver to porcelain, a beautiful and unique result that is a signature of her pieces.
All of Emilia’s pieces are made of natural materials such as lapis lazuli, jasper, turquoise, malachite, onyx, porcelain and silver. Her designs are hand-crafted in the workshop at her ranch in Taxco.
