Design


Aided by modern technology, Chris Castillo’s creations feature three-dimensional characteristics that translate into bold structural and dynamic statements.


The incorporation of linear and curved movement, balanced by hollow spaces and solid surfaces is the main concept that is diligently applied throughout his design process. This is very evident in his ‘jewellery suites’, which are rapidly prototyped, refined and finally hand-finished to the exacting professional standards that are applied to all his original quality creations.
