A freelance writer penned an article on Roberto Vengoechea. The headline read: “Imagine Dr. Seuss meeting Salvador Dali …” She continues: “Vengoechea’s contemporary designs encompass both beauty and madness similar to Dali’s style while defying acceptable 21st century jewelry traditions, with square, architectural and geometric shapes inspired by Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi.”
Roberto Vengoechea is a self-taught designer and sculptor born in Colombia, South America. His 30 years of experience inspires sophisticated and contemporary fine jewelry featuring square, geometric and architectural shaped rings, cast in precious metals, using the “lost wax” process and incorporating fine colored gemstones and diamonds. He breaks away from the traditional round shank to create his own designs using these unique and distinctive shapes.
Open since December 1996, this unique designer jewelry gallery, owned by husband and wife, Roberto and June Vengoechea is located in what Roberto describes as the “artsy metropolis” of Black Mountain, 15 miles East of Asheville.
IT’S NOT JUST FINE JEWELRY – IT’S FINE ART.
