“I was born in Simojovel in the state of Chiapas, Mexico; this region contains one of the greatest deposits of amber in the entire country.
“I am Luis Zuñiga; I am an artisanal jeweler with a particular fascination for amber. I have always loved getting to know the essence of my country, and making a piece that contains the same spirit gives me a great feeling of gratitude, which I want to share with every person that I can.
“I learned under the instruction of my mother, Lilia Mijangos. My mother brought me to the workshop often, and I always loved seeing the amber. One of the things that my mother shared with me was the importance of observation and initiative. She told me that whatever ideas I had would amount to nothing if I did not develop my own technique with confidence.
“For me, the selection of the amber is the essence of my work. I love teaching people what this resin has to offer; it is like having a millenary piece of life in your hands that complements your personality. The greatest inspiration lies in the simple task of observing the resin with its spectrum of colors, and imagining how this piece was in the earth way before any of our generations, and I love transforming it into jewelry.”
