Handmade jewelry inspired by our Latino roots

Hello all!

My name is Melina, I am the owner of Castillo & Co. Jewelry.

The name of the shop is a tip of the hat to my last name, Castillo. Castillo translates to "castle" in English which explains my logo.

My passion for jewelry-making started at a very young age. My grandmother would always gift me jewelry from when she would visit us in the states. I wanted to give her something back for her wonderful presents; so I began to make her bracelets from plastic beads and elastic.

As I made more jewelry for my grandmother and other people, I became more curious about the techniques used to make more intricate pieces and toyed with different materials. So those plastic beads and elastic transformed to czech glass beads and wire materials, and so on.

That being said, jewelry has played a sentimental role in my life and has become the way I express myself and how I show my appreciation for others. It has also become a way for me to tend to my roots since bead-weaving reminds me of the Huichol artisans I would see growing up when I visited Mexico every year.

The mission of Castillo & Co. Jewelry is to create handmade jewelry inspired by our Latino roots. We create our designs with the intent of celebrating our culture through use of different colors, materials, shapes, and textures in our jewelry making techniques.

Thanks for taking the time to read! Gracias!
