Story Behind the Art:
Art Camp -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 1990s 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 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.

These earrings are very attractive and the color combination of blues and greens is unique and pretty. The size is ideal too as the charms themselves are about 1/2" long (without hanging loop) by 5/16" wide. They aren't too big or heavy. Backing on each charm is silver. I'll be wearing these frequently--already enjoying compliments on them. This is the second purchase of Alpaca Silver that I've made, and I'll be buying more. These would be very appealing to all sorts of Moms for Mother's Day, or a lovely birthday gift.Read More
These are very pretty earrings. The colors are much nicer (I think) than in the picture - much less yellow. The malachite, turquoise, etc. make a very nice color combination. The stones are backed and 2/3 of the way up he sides with silver. The hook holding one of the earrings is not completely closed (why "good") but it seems quite secure, and is not enough to see while wearing the earrings. Overall, very nice colorful turquoise/green earrings.Read More

I was able to give these earrings to my mom for a birthday present to match with a necklace that she already had. The earrings look a lot better in person than online. They look really shiny depending on how the light reflecting off of them.Read More
very nice. I like the way the ear rings look on. Great colors that go with lots of my clothes.Read More
I like the idea of having these earrings made in other countries as a way to employ women, but for $20 they need to "hang" well, or they won't get worn. I wanted them for a gift, but had to return them.Read More
