Necklaces, pendants, brooches, rings, earrings … all this in silver and gold, in an entire parallelism with the engravings and that hang in the wall, where it re-shows the golden bread. His wife is the goldsmith of his designs.
Old or dull silver on which they emphasize the drawings in gold, with abstract forms that approach floral elements, moons, stars, butterflies, primitive human figures... Always in forms delicuescentes. Nothing more attractive than the reality spent by the proper line; the living beings outlined in an artistic gesture. The drawings in the Jaúregui jewels there is a miscellany of oriental allusions and Basques of big singularity. The author admits that he looks for the spirit in his plastic creativity.
