About Gregory

Check out my blog about Santa Fe Silverworks

Award-winning precious metals artist and Santa Fe native Gregory Segura started perfecting his silversmithing skills in the 1990s. He had served in the U.S. Air Force and worked as a hotel manager, financial planner, and sales manager, but his heart was looking for a new, more creative career path. In, 2008 Gregory picked up his hammer and lit his torch and never looked back.

 

Although he had taken a metalworking class in the 1980s, Greg’s expertise with silver is largely self-taught. “Working with silver just comes naturally to me,” he admits. “Sculpting, painting, and carving do not come to me with the ease and understanding I feel in working with silver and stones. I guess you could say I was born with a silver spoon (I made) in my mouth.”

 

Gregory’s work reflects his Spanish and Native American heritage. For each of his original designs, he draws on the legacy of New Mexico’s master silversmiths as well as rich culture and natural beauty of the region. His work encompasses a wide range of diverse designs, from traditional to contemporary, making each piece individual and unique.

 

Gregory crafts his pieces by hand from the heaviest gauge sterling silver possible for that piece. Since launching Santa Fe Silverworks in 2008, he has attracted a loyal following for his attention to quality, detail, and the inherent beauty of his materials. In 2010, he received the E. Boyd Memorial Award for Originality and Expressive Design at Santa Fe’s annual Traditional Spanish Market. That same piece, Corazón de Santa Fe, also won in the market’s precious metals category. That year, 2010, was his debut year juried into the market. In 2013, at Gregory’s forth Traditional Spanish Market, he was awarded the First Place Blue Ribbon in Precious Metals for his 75ct Ruby Sacred Heart Rosary. The year 2015 was big, as it was the start of Gregory's work being featured in Robert Redford's Sundance Catalog. 

 

The world-renowned Author, Collector and Dealer of Native American Art, Martha Struever, invited Gregory to be the only Hispanic Artist during her 2011 Summer Native American Artist Tour. Gregory, and the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art in Santa Fe, hosted a lecture on the influences and history of Spanish Silversmithing for twenty plus collectors from around the world.  

 

Gregory’s ancestors first arrived in Santa Fe around 1624 and he still calls it home with the love of his life and inspiration, Debra, and their four rescue cats, Sugar, Benicio del Gato (Lil Buddy), Wally, Penelope and Murphy, their cat-herding border collie mix.

 

Every piece you choose was created from the “Heart and Soul of Santa Fe”.
