|The late Santiago "Jim"
Herrera, was Arnold Herreras father, teacher,and
mentor. Arnold worked alongside his dad learning the
intricate and intimate knowledge of Herreras
elders. After his fathers death, Arnold was left to
fill numerous orders that his father had not been able to
complete due to illness.
Since that time, Arnold has become an accomplished drum maker and silversmith in his own right. He is now passing on this extensive art knowledge and technology to his three sons, Tim, Carlos, and Thomas. They are learning and making their own styles of jewelry as well as exploring other forms of self-expression in wood, clay, metal, and on paper.
