Rodolfo Pérez Santos (Oaxaca City)

Rodolfo creates many styles of jewelry, given his broad repertoire. He is epecially talented in creating pieces in the “safiro blanco” (literally translated as “white sapphire”) technique characterized by small bits of crystal and decorative elements mounted on silver with a corresponding gold backing. He is very proud of having originated his own designs, such as the leaf cross and the “ring of the duchess.” Rodolfo works in his own shop in a neighborhood 10 minutes outside of the center of town with his son, who also loves this form of at. Most of Rodolfo’s work is commissioned by collectors.
