Roy Nilson says: 'I was born in Rio Cuarto, Argentina on December 21, 1962. I finished school, but the course work was in no way related to art. When I graduated, I began training as a stage actor. When I was 40, I moved to Mexico, and began to design silver jewelry. My designs are 100 percent handcrafted by artisans who preserve traditional techniques. I'd describe my style as simple and original, inspired by life and by my people.'
