Story Behind the Art:
The artisans of Tecalpulco, Mexico have long been known for their silver and abalone Mexican fashion jewelry. Art Camp, short for Artesanas Campesinas or rural women artisans, is a women-owned cooperative that continues this tradition. The group continues to introduces new methods, materials, and machinery to compete in the highly competitive jewelry market, surviving a collapse in the 1990's in the marketability of their pieces with the influx of jewelry from other countries to the US market.

This bracelet is WAY smaller than I expected - the stones probably 1/4" square. So if you like "dainty" it will work for you. Perhaps if you stack it with other bracelets it would work well. That being said, it is well made and I like it a lot. It's simply smaller than I expected.
Turquoise is my wife's favorite color. So getting an acceptable color is a good starting point. She liked it. And that is more important than if I like it. It was a lot of bang for the buck. This was part of her 'stash' she received.
