The ring was very well made and shipped quickly. I look forward to ordering more from Luis. He communicated via email to ensure my satisfaction and I had a very pleasurable experience overall.

I purchased a set of the Arches Collection (pendant/necklace, earrings and ring). I special ordered the ring size to 11.5 US and the necklace length to 18 inches (46 cm). Mr. Luis Mendez handled my ordered directly. Everything was ready within a few days and then shipped through FedEx to my location. There were no shipping issues. When the jewelry arrived I was pleasantly surprised. Everything looked just as beautiful as in the photos. The ring and necklace were perfectly tailored my mother measurements (early mother’s day present). The Arches Collection delivers an intricate yet delicate and graceful design. Mr. Mendez maintained constant communication through the entire process and provided tracking information immediately after shipping. 100% Happy!

About

Luis Méndez Artesanos - Fine Filigree Jewelry - Since 1928

The professional biography of this legendary line of metalsmiths dates back to 1928, when José María Méndez, of Portuguese descent, founded his workshop in Tamames, Salamanca. His son Luis Méndez Vieira has continued on with his work and represents the third generation of metalsmiths in the family.

“Brothers Luis, Raúl and Jerónimo Méndez López have become a model for the recovery of a technique of contemporary jewelry-making that has nearly been forgotten in the present day – filigree. Luis Méndez Artesanos has a history of 88 years of artisan jewelry-making and three generations of filigree artists.

The production process for all of their jewelry requires exclusive dedication and expert hands, thereby making each piece entirely unique. Their work features the possibilities of this ancient technique, bringing it to life by applying it to classic models as well as contemporary creations,” Text from the catalogue. Exhibition Singular.es.

Their pieces are sold from their gallery in Salamanca, where they showcase the cultural aspects of their product and provide the public with information about filigree technique. They promote the exhibition of different artists’ work and provide training at national and international
"arts & crafts" centers. They participate in trade fairs, exhibitions and various online sales platforms. They plan all their projects with the goal of raising awareness of the value of artisan work.

Over the years, the workshop has maintained a coherent narrative, combining their know-how with new technologies to achieve a top-quality product. To date, their work has achieved significant recognition both in Spain and abroad.

Important pieces by Luis Méndez Artesanos feature in renowned private collections and he has been selected for the seventh time to participate in the most popular art fair in the world, "International Folk Art Market" Santa Fe (New Mexico – USA)

On March 31, 2016 they received the 2015 Product Award at the National Artisan Awards. On this occasion, Luis Méndez Artesanos was chosen for "The garden," a pendant that reinterprets a traditional model from the 18th century; it was transformed into a modern, exclusive piece of jewelry, steeped in history, and stands out for its esthetic and plastic quality.
