Castro became fascinated by jewelry when working for a jeweler selling his jewelry on the streets of SOHO. Inspired to try his hand at the craft, he began making his own pieces. Influenced by his shamanistic dreams of animals and their skulls, the outer universe and medieval details, his designs contain animation and charm combined with an Old World, West African feel. Each 3D piece is made from found, common and uncommon objects and materials. His goal is for his jewelry to gain attention—and foremost communicate a story.
