Sundance Catalog Baby!
So this year has been very exciting year at Santa Fe Silverworks by Gregory
Segura. I had very successful Summer Spanish Market and I believe, I will finally be in permanent booth spot from now on.
The Winter Market just week ago was my best ever. The biggest news is that Robert Redford's Sundance Catalog is now carrying two of my cuffs from the Enchanted Cuff Line. The leather braided
with sterling tips Ceremony Cuff and the Desert Night Cuff which Sundance Catalog has named the Star Valley Cuff. They have also committed to one more style cuff which will be out sometime next year.
This was a lot of work but well worth the effort. OK back to the bench. I wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy

Exciting 2012 Summer
I want to thank all of you for your support at another successful
2012 Summer Traditional Spanish Market on the plaza in beautiful Santa Fe, NM. This year I was approached
by the owner and buyer from the world famous Ortega's on the Plaza. I was asked if I would be interested in showing my work at Ortega's. I was very excited at this opportunity to be represented
by a store known for their quality and knowledge of fine southwestern jewelry and to among other master silversmiths.
At our first meeting in the store I was given a warm welcome introduced to the staff as their newest artist and
told I would get a small space with a few pieces to show, to see how I would be received by their clientele. I opened
my case to show them what I had and before we knew it I would need a full case to display all that was chosen. To
say the least I was more then excited now, as this was days before Santa Fe's premier Indian Market. I was asked
to come back and give a little talk to the staff about myself and my work and to return that Friday night for an
invitation only reception. What a whirlwind it's been. I was told my work started selling as soon as they put it
out and and second wave of items is ready to go on display. I hope that when you are in Santa Fe you'll visit Ortega's
to see my latest work and that many other fine silversmiths. I may run into you there.

Metalsmith Magazine Article
4:07 pm mdt
Today I received my Metalsmith magazine and in it was an article entitled "Traditional Spanish Metalwork, A Living Past". I was interviewed last
Spanish Market by various writers brought to my both by market staff. I was told an article was submitted to Metalsmith magazine
and now I am so excited and honored that not only was I featured in the article but the editors at Metalsmith magazine used
a picture of my "Corazon de Santa Fe" as well. So cool... I am beside myself.
magazine is a publication from "SNAG" Society of North American Goldsmiths" and subscribed to by the top Metal Artists, Teachers and Suppliers in the
world as well as those with interest in Metal Art. It is the top publication in my field and knowing that my peers will be
reading about my work and that I have been included into a group of artists worthy enough to be published in Metalsmith...
well, in the words of that cartoon character that lives under the sea "This is the best day ever!" Thank you
writers Patricia Harris and David Lyon and the Editors of Metalsmith, you have made my year. You can find Metalsmith
magazine at your local newsstand.
Just two corrections
to the article,
1-Corazon de Santa Fe is Sterling Silver not "tin"
is me "Gregory Segura"
