Santa Fe Silverworks is a collection of beautiful, unique and exquisitely handcrafted sterling silver jewelry pieces created by Santa Fe, New Mexico native and Award Winning Silversmith Gregory Segura. Being mostly self taught, Gregory began designing jewelry in silver 20 years ago and has continued to perfect his skills over the years. Inspired by all the beauty that the Southwest has to offer, and a great admirer of master silversmiths from New Mexico's past, Gregory's work reflects his Spanish and Native American heritage. A bit of a restless soul, or maybe because he is a Gemini, Gregory's jewelry offers a wide range of diverse designs from traditional to contemporary.
All of Gregory's jewelry designs are original handmade sterling silver pieces. Many are one-of-a-kind works of art and most of his intricately stamped designs are truly unique, with no two identical. He uses the heaviest gauge of silver possible to craft his pieces giving them a substantial feel and the assurance of the highest quality available.
"From the first time I started working with silver it just came natural to me. Designs came easy and manipulating the silver to execute my ideas just made sense. Turquoise has always been my favorite stone to use because of the varied hues of blue to green, often with unique matrix lines. Combine that with silver and beautiful jewelry is the result and reward."

From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via firstname.lastname@example.org anytime, I will do my best to be of help.
