Sigi Pineda


Perhaps one of the last historic artisans still producing jewelry and new designs in Taxco, Sigi Pineda started working with some of the great Taxcanian masters from early childhood.

He opened his own shop in 1952 at the age of 23. Unlike his predecessors who offered traditional design, he began producing work that was 50s modern with an acute attention to detail both artistically and technically.

He is responsible for influencing the Mexican-Modernism art movement, and creating a style so distinct that people identify his work immediately.
