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 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. The jewelry product range includes semi-precious stones, shells, or tiny flowers captured in resin accentuated by silver alloys or precious metals. The tradition of fine Mexican jewelry is present in each piece.

I have the orange and blue sun ones that are similar to these and love them. I love these equally. They are just the tiniest bit smaller, but the size is still good and just right. The quality is excellent and they are really fun earrings to wear - lots of compliments! Only down side, is they do not have backs with them and the wires are not super long, so I definitely would wear backs on them. You wouldn't want to accidentally lose them - they are very light weight and you wouldn't know you lost one til it's too late. But, I would definitely recommend them!
