Emilia Castillo is the daughter of Don Antonio Castillo, founder of the famous Los Castillo studio in Taxco, Mexicao. She grew up surrounded by silversmith art and fell in love with the material and process. Her ability to capture the taste of the day with clean forms and a playful use of colored stones has earned her a great following and representation by retailers such as Neiman Marcus.
