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, 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. The jewelry product range includes semi-precious stones, shells, or tiny flowers captured in resin accentuated by silver alloys or precious metals.
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.

These earrings are much prettier than the picture. I actually felt wowed when I saw them. This is a quality piece of jewelry and much nicer than anything else I have gotten on Overstock. They are well made; and the colors can be used to match several different ways. I would love to find a pendant and ring to match.
