Gabriela Sánchez grew up in a jewelry family. This is how she learned the art of jewelery and how to appreciate jewels as pieces that treasure and carry emotions. Through this experience, Gabriela is inspired and creates small representative and unique silver sculptures of what she is most passionate about; her roots, the Mexican culture.
Inspired by life itself, in sharing and transmitting a particular view of the Mexican world, through its corners, memories, flavors, landscapes and traditions, Gabriela Sánchez decides to create her own jewelery firm at age 35, which bears her name.
With more than 15 years in jewelery design, Gabriela shares this passion and life experience with her daughter Artemisa Ramírez, currently co-designer of the brand. Together they are a duo where experience and freshness have managed to innovate the firm and be within the Tapatio talent. Representing not only the essence and Mexican culture, but placing emotions in each piece, with moments and stories that are felt in a living Mexico, full of colors, textures, movement and, above all, symbols and traditions.
Each of its collections is characterized by highlighting the elegance of the silver in combination of gems from around the world – but especially the amber of Chiapas and the opal of Magdalena, Jalisco -, and colorful fabrics, with the intention of making each jewel a unique piece. So these two designers put at stake the creativity and work of artisans.
A creative process that starts from inspiration within a dream, a trip, or going through a place, then that idea goes to paper to translate it into wax, and after a long process, involving different people, elements and machinery, they give life to the jewel. Thus this metal like silver becomes authentic small sculptures full of personality and energy.
“Hearts”, “Silver fabric”, “Skeletons”, “Agave Plata”, “Silver toys” and “Infinity” are some of their collections, in which both designers tell us that their work is still spearheading fashion reference, with new proposals, loaded with tradition and Mexican pride.
