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.

While looking for some reasonably priced, unique style, preferably with the SW/native design, I found these, as well as similar ones in Overstock.com. Lovely, lovely. They are a universal size that perfect for everyday, as well as evenings and appeal to young and older women. I have never seen anything like them, which makes them all the more special. The colors are subtle and therefore can be a neutral when pairing with clothing. I have gotten many positive comments.
