Venito Pérez López comes from Huistan, a tzotzil town in Chiapas. He went to work for the Museo Mesoamericano de Jade in 1991 and learned the basics of how to make jewelry and work with stones and amber. He is a first generation artist now working as an independent amber jeweler.

Amber can be found in several areas of Chiapas but Simojovel is the capital of amber. Chiapaneco amber is one of the finest in the world and Chiapas amber comes in several shades from pale to dark yellow and red. Amber can also have a green shade although the green is really yellow or brown amber over red. Some amber pieces have imprisoned moss and insects in them.

Venito’s teachers were from Salvador and Guatemala and he has passed on his knowledge to his wife, children and son-in-law. Several of his pieces are in the Museo Mesoamericano de Jade. He and his children have participated and won many prizes in state and national competitions

His work crew is comprised of 10 other artisans, all members of his family. He designs the jewelry and does the finish work, although there might be several people involved in the entire process before a piece is finished.
