Meet Juan Veliz
 

Juan Veliz began his life as a concert violinist. He traveled around the country performing with an orchestra. Now, though he no longer performs, he still writes and plays music as a hobby.

Veliz decided to give his talent to another profession. “I grew tired of travel, and I missed the faces of my hometown.” At the age of twenty-five, he returned to San Jeronimo and began to learn the craft of jewelry making from his parents. Forty years later, he says he still loves his work. “I like to feel the silver in my hands.” He specializes in silver figurines, inspired from the San Jeronimo country side, its people and its rich native customs.
