Richard & Jared Chavez (San Felipe)
About the Artist
Richard has been an award-winning jeweler for over 30 years, demonstrating his early architecture training in the powerful lines, balance, and meticulous detail of his creations. He is particularly known for his fine lapidary work—cutting and polishing all of his own stones. Jared grew up in the studio of his father and promised at age 10 that he would give his complete attention to jewelry-making if he was allowed to use his father’s tools. A graduate of Georgetown University, Jared has created his own reputation as a sought-after artist and is known for the unusual textures in his metalwork that evoke his own training as a printmaker.
