The Pacific: Galápagos

Volcanic inspiration

Great Find: In His Element
"I'm not a businessman; I can't stand the pressure. That's why I live in the Galápagos," says jewelry designer Fabián de Santos, who's been there since 1972. Working in silver and gold, De Santos sells his designs, inspired by the harsh beauty of the volcanic islands, at his shop in Santa Cruz. Our favorite: a silver "lava-flow" necklace ($1,600) and cuff ($850). Galleria d'Arte, Isola Santa Cruz; 413-525-9760.
