Hector Herrera

I was born in southern Mexico, land of craftspeople. Having worked most of my life with microscopes, I make art on a small scale, working with silver and enamel glass. This is art that you can wear, take with you, and enjoy wherever you go.

I am inspired by nature; my work includes birds, flowers, insects and other creatures of the natural world. I strive to make it precise and well-finished—art that you will be happy to wear.

My artwork is made by hand with fine silver, 24K gold wire, and Japanese and French enamels. The techniques I use are Cloisonné, Champlevé and Plique-à-Jour.

I have a passion for making almost any kind of art or craft. I enjoy creating beautiful jewelry, but most of all, I enjoy the smiles of the people who wear my pieces.
