Story Behind the Art:
Francisco Sanchez says, 'I am the second generation of jewelers and now my daughters have also chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much, using different motifs from our own culture. I sign by work as Citlali, meaning Star in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company.'
