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. 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.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I was very disappointed getting these earrings. In the photo it looks like a variety of browns and even yellow; however, the product has actually only one tone of brown and looks a bit borring. Surprisingly, the back of the earring is quite nice and detailed but is not shown on the web site.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? absolutely not
