DeLaLuzArtisan's Shop Announcement

I am Vanessa Carrillo & welcome to my Etsy shop, De La Luz Artisan - Texas Hill Country Metalworks. I bring you handcrafted Jewelry & Wares.

"De La Luz" in the Spanish Language means "Of The Light". My shop name is not only my Father's namesake, but the way I hope to share my talent and inspiration with you all. I wish to project the joy I find when I take a few bits of this or that & see them worn later on someone I love. I create each piece by hand in which countless hours of technique & sourced materials are dedicated. I hope to illuminate the re-creation of such humble materials as re-purposed vintage pieces, found objects or steel wire to the level of a fabulous sparkling crystal, soft buttery pearls, or natural stone. And I hope when you wear one of my pieces, your light shines a little bit brighter that day.

I love to make custom pieces especially for BRIDAL & QUINCENERA parties. Please convo me to discuss any custom orders.

I love working with my hands! I love small details, tools, and old school techniques. Working on a project everyday gives me such satisfaction! I am of late inspired by the vintage feeling Antiqued Copper & Bronze evoke. Steel Wire is also a new muse for me. And Thanks to the fabulous teachers Lorena Angulo, Sarah Roberts, & Jill Palone with The Southwest School of Art for my foundation in metals, wax casting, & steel wire use. Coming this Fall, I'll be posting projects featuring lockets & hand poured solid perfumes. Look for collaborative art pieces with a couple of very talented artists as well as a few more surprises!

Thank your for your support!
