Buenos Aires, Argentina

Diego Pereira

He was born on August 30th, 1975 in Mercedes, Buenos Aires. He started to attach hafts to blades at 14 to satisfy his curiosity and as a personal vocation. His interest in metalsmithing led him to take a course in burin engraving. He then took courses in chiseling directed by master Héctor Spoltore and in engraving with the jeweler Fanny Weinstein. His designs are inspired by traditional elements, which he recreates adding his personal imprint.
