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 1990's 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.
