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.

  • Lovely and lightweight

    A very nice pair of earrings. They are thinner than my other Taxco earrings, but that makes them lighter in weight and therefore more comfortable to wear. They were smaller than I expected from the photo. Because the green and blue halves are mirrored, the wearer can choose which color gets emphasized.
