Story Behind the Art: Art Camp -The artisans of Tecalpulco, Mexico have long been known for their silver and abalone jewelry. Art Camp, short for Artesanas Campesinas or rural women artisans, is a women-owned cooperative that continues this tradition. The group continues to introduce new methods, materials, and machinery to compete in the highly competitive jewelry market, surviving a collapse in the 1990s in the marketability of their pieces with the influx of jewelry from other countries to the US market. The women have become business women, understanding the importance of customer service, quality, and design. The tradition of fine Mexican jewelry is present in each piece.

I love the uniqueness of these earrings. One does not see these in department stores. The price is great. One would pay much more elsewhere. Having three colors allows them to be worn with many outfits. You won't be disappointed with these earrings.
