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 introduce new methods, materials, and machinery to compete in the highly competitive jewelry 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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I am so pleased with the Barrett. It is beautiful and looks just like the picture in the ad. The clip is sturdy. One thing to keep in mind is that Alpaca silver is not the precious metal silver.
Alpaca is a mixture of Zinc and nickel or copper.It has no silver content
I knew that before I bought it and I'm okay with that.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made
I was buying Christmas gifts for everyone else and decided to get something for me! I have long fine hair and big, heavy barrettes tend to end up sliding out. This one looks beautiful and holds very nicely. It is lovely barrette, nice size, and I've gotten a lot of compliments. Thank you for making this. Excellent craftsmanship.
