Serving Seville's holy traditions

  • • The brothers' family have been goldsmith pioneers since 1870
  • • They create and restore holy art
  • • As well as gold, they work with bronze, silver and other metals

Jerónimo Seco-Velasco and his brother Manuel represent the fifth generation of the oldest goldsmith's workshop in Andalusia. Based in Seville, the workshop focuses on making pieces of 'arte sacro' (holy art), creating an indissoluble connection with the city's tradition of Semana Santa (Holy Week). The company's creations also grace several churches around Spain and abroad. On an artistic level, throughout the years the workshop has developed incredible expertise in decorative pieces and built relationships with interior designers, with whom they collaborate on the creation of one-of-a kind pieces. Every day they accept new challenges, feeling the weight of their reputation as pioneers in their field, whose work is held in such high regard.
