Roberto Vengoechea's designs showcase futuristic and contemporary fine jewelry, specializing in custom work (bring your own stones). These innovative creations defy the conventional forms and genres, yet are practical in their form and fit. “Like Gaudi, I like to confound the conventional and push the boundaries of 'thinking outside the box.'”
Roberto was born and raised in Colombia, South America, of Indian and Spanish-Basque ancestry. He immigrated to America as a young man, learning his craft while living in Florida. In Florida he met his wife, June (from Scotland) and together they relocated to Black Mountain, North Carolina to be closer to the unique arts and crafts scene. His Gallery, Visions of Creation, is in downtown Black Mountain, NC.
