Taxco, Mexico is renowned for its magnificent colonial architecture, narrow cobbled streets, and for being the hometown of jewelry designer, Daniel Espinosa. Since launching his company in 1989, Espinosa has attained star status in Latin America and become the most celebrated Latino jewelry designer in the world. His jewelry design empire employs 350 artisans who produce over 10,000 pieces monthly. Super-trendy Daniel Espinosa boutiques are popping up everywhere from Puerto Vallarta to Europe, Asia, and Canada.
Espinosa studied art in Florence, fashion design in Holland, international marketing in New York, and jewelry design at the Gemological Institute of America. He is considered an avant-garde rebel, his jewelry collected by celebrity fashionistas such as Susan Sarandon, Madonna, Halle Berry, Daisy Fuentes, Eva Longorin, Nelly Furtado, Hilary Duff, and a bevy of admirers from all walks of life. His jewelry designs are bold, daring, and often controversial, going where conformists and traditionalists dare not go.
Espinosa's creative genius is a rich tapestry woven from his life experience and embellished with a child-like curiosity that never wanes, his seductive designs exuding his passion for life and fashion. He finds inspiration for his designs in his hometown of Taxco, a gleaming vista of white marble sizzling under the Mexican sun. The colorful Galliano parade and the great spectacle of Guelaguetza in nearby Oaxaca stimulate his creativity.
Twice a year, Espinosa and his staff retreat into their private world for two or three weeks to design the next collections. Espinosa’s dedication to the design process, attention to detail, passion for his art, and business acumen have made him one of the most successful jewelry designers of today. A masterful blend of Mexican silver and random, eclectic elements that dazzle and delight the eye, each jewelry piece tells a story. From retro tiger's eye to multi-faceted cubic zirconia, recycled glass, and cork to precious gemstones his exuberant designs are an inspiration for any budding jewelry designer.
