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.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I like this pin very much. The visible part on the front is great quality. There is some bubbling and smudging in the silver on the back, but nothing terrible. Just enough to rate it 4 stars instead of 5.
