Story Behind the Art:
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 introduces 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.

I have been buying Mexican silver items for 40 years but little in recent years. The craftsmanship is just not what it is in other countries. The design in person is just ordinary. I was hoping it would be more attractive than it is.
I ordered this as a gift for my Mother. It arrived 2 days early! Which was great. It is beautiful, much more so than the photograph. It came in a box for wrapping too! I am very happy with my order. I would recommend this to my friends.

This is a beautiful pin, it is nicely made with vibrantly colorful stones. It will last as long as taken proper care of. The only downside is you have to wipe the soot off from the edges so it does not get on your clothes. It was also a bit smaller than expected.
