"Why did you choose this product?"
It is a very beautiful work of art. You can tell it is finely handcrafted. It is exactly the size that I was looking for. My neck is not that thick so it is not a choker. It doesn't dangle too low either so there is little chance that it will get caught on things. The other important thing is that the purchase helped independent artists....

Juan Contreras and his wife Rosario used to run a clothing shop, but financial hardship struck and things were not going well for them. Friends suggested the art of jewelry design, and Juan grappled with the decision for years. It was a world he absolutely knew nothing of, yet it offered myriad creative possibilities. At first they relied on expert silversmiths. Little by little, Juan became an eager student. He is now passionate about designing his own jewelry. He faces the challenge of keeping up with current trends as well as creating new and original designs. Now his work can be appreciated in important exhibits.

Thrilled when I saw the picture but very disappointed once I received the actual product. The crucifix is deceptively small and nothing like the pic. The pic gives the impression that there is some substance to it but alas there isn't. The description states that it's a necklace, which it is....if you're a small child! Thought it would have more length than it did. It sorta fit like a choker on me LOL. Since I cannot where it I have placed it around the rear-view mirror in my car.Read More
