Yourgin Levy

YourginYourgin was born on the island of Roatan.  He is a true islander!  He grew up living in Sandy Bay with his grandfather and brother.

He initially had a hard time here since he was estranged from his family and spent most of his time living on the streets.   Roatan can be a tough place to grow up and yet things always seem to work out for him. He will always be grateful to his cousin who came back to the island and decided to allow him to live with her.  Yourgin-familyShe took care of him, helped him, and allowed him to sell the jewellery that she was making.  One day she decided to teach him how to carve black coral and turtle shell for himself.  Yourgin hasn’t looked back since that day and thanks her for giving him such a wonderful opportunity.

It took time but he managed to develop the art of carving and sanding, creating wonderful unique pieces of jewellery.  He stopped carving the black coral when it became endangered and now loves to carve out of the many faceted colors of our beautiful Honduran jade.   I asked him how he does it and he said he simply allows the grain and the colors to define each piece that will emerge.  You won’t find any other jewellery like this...each piece is truly one of a kind!!

Yourgin is married to a beautiful girl from Montana and they have 3 wonderful boys. Making jewellery is his main source of income so we thank you in advance for supporting him with your purchase.
