Story Behind the Art:
Artisana - Handmade Jewelry by Women in Mexico. In rural Mexico, women often support their families through farming while their husbands and sons search for work in the US. But in the state of Guerrero, which is renowned for silversmithing, women handcraft and sell jewelry as their main source of income. Their designs that incorporate alpaca silver, stones, and colorful resin are their trademark, making them true artesanas.The pieces in the Artisana Collection are all handmade by women working in a Fair Trade cooperative near Taxco, Mexico. Weaving the traditional skills of jewelry making with more modern techniques these women are able to produce this amazing line of jewelry.Fair Trade ensures that they are paid a fair price, and provided with an advance to finance production. They have a long-term sustainable business because they are connected to buyers who are committed to the principles of Fair Trade.

    I purchased this barrette because it's one of the beautiful ones I have seen. Sadly enough I had to return because it would not hold my thick hair. I still give it 5 stars!!!

    Beautiful barette. Quality construction. Use this on my long hair for pull-back hair-do from face.

    If you are a fan of abalone and you have thin hair this might hold your hair. I was looking for a longer barret for my thick hair, sadly this one won’t do that.
