Award-winning precious metals artist and Santa Fe native Gregory Segura started perfecting his silversmithing skills in the 1990s. He had served in the U.S. Air Force and worked as a hotel manager and financial planner but his heart was looking for a new, more creative career path. In, 2008 Gregory picked up his hammer and lit his torch and never looked back. Gregory’s work reflects his Spanish and Native American heritage. For each of his original designs, he draws on the legacy of New Mexico’s master silversmiths as well as rich culture and natural beauty of the region. His work encompasses a wide range of diverse designs, from traditional to contemporary, making each piece individual and unique.

In 2010, he received the E. Boyd Memorial Award for Originality and Expressive Design at Santa Fe’s annual Traditional Spanish Market. In 2021 New Mexico Magazine named Gregory as one of 12 Makers New Mexico. Recognition given to artists that inspire and are inspired by New Mexico. Gregory’s work is regularly featured in Robert Redford’s Sundance Catalog’s Heritage Collection. Numerous articles have featured Gregory and his work including Metalsmith Magazine, Trend and Native Arts to name a few.

Gregory’s Spanish ancestors arrived in Santa Fe around 1624 and he still calls it home with the love of his life and inspiration, Debra, and their two rescue cats,  Benicio del Gato (Lil Buddy) and Wally and two rescue pup’s named Steve and Theodore aka Teddy (Ted) aka (NO).
