Hello, my name is Francisco Sánchez and I am the second generation of jewelers in my family. Today there are three, as my daughters have also chosen this vocation.

Thanks to my father's influence, I began this beautiful occupation at a very early age. Art has formed a part of my life through my studies in architecture, painting, sculpture and jewelry. I was honored with a scholarship to study Foreign Trade in Rotterdam, Holland. In 1968, I founded a small workshop that I still direct and I personally design my pieces. I have exhibited my work in the U.S., Taipei, Munich, Vancouver and other countries. I have received several awards throughout my career, such as the Jalisco Award in Jewelry Design in 2000.

"My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much, using different motifs from our own culture. I very much like the ideas from our ancestors, always with a characteristic stylization reminiscent of our cultural and artisan past. I especially enjoy designing jewelry. I am always looking for something different to incorporate into my ideas, striving to be at the vanguard in the styles with which I deal.

"To create my jewelry, I first take a prototype of the design. I make a model with brass. It is mounted on a silver sheet, covered with a gummy paint, and burned in a petroleum flame to smoke the design. It is cleaned of impurities and polished. Each product that I design and craft is made of fine silver with Italian alloys and anti-oxidants to exceed the expectations of the most demanding clients."

Francisco Sánchez signs his work as Citlali, meaning "Star" in the Náhuatl language. "That way, everyone wearing my designs has a star to accompany them," explains Sánchez.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
