David, a talented artisan, learned goldsmithing from his family and works with his brothers in a small workshop in Tumaco. He is also a fisherman who whenever he can, takes his boat out onto the pacific to fish. He works with his brothers and team to create traditional fine filigree work for the local market. He shared with Pippa stories of mermaids, specifically the myth of a mermaid that has been seen bathing in the river now named after her.

For this collection, he made a beautiful gold mermaid with delicate filling in her tail, a seahorse, and a fish charm that he placed on a handmade chain.
