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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

These earrings are very pretty with bright, vivid colors, but they are smaller than a penny! However, they are nice and light, and I love the way they dangle!Read More
These are colorful and bright and go with a number of outfits in my closet. These do not have a rubber backing for the curved post and unless I want to loose these, I have to provide these. The optimum secure device would be lever backs, but these days (I don't know why) they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Otherwise, I won't risk losing one when I slip my coat or jacket off, as it's happened way too often.Read More

The scale of these were too big for me. The are not huge,but I have short hair and like an earring smaller than this. I tried to guess from the measurement given. I wish it was in inches rather than mm. I know this is unique b/c it is a handcrafted item,but the turquoise was not well matched. One earring had black splotches on it and the other didn't . It was very noticeable. Back they go.Read More
