Roberto Vengoechea 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.
Roberto’s designs feature sophisticated, contemporary fine jewelery consisting of unique square-shank rings, cast in precious metals using fine gemstones and diamonds. His creations have often been referred to as as “Dali-esque.”
