Artisan Spotlight - Artesanas Campesinas

Artesanas Campesinas (or rural female artisans) is a women-owned cooperative that continues the Mexican tradition of silver and abalone jewelry. For them, because of fair trade nothing is impossible!

The group constantly introduces new methods, materials, and machinery to compete in the highly competitive jewelry market, even surviving a collapse in the marketability of their pieces in the 1990's after jewelry from other countries flooded the US market. The artisans have become business women, understanding the importance of customer service, quality, and design. Their product range includes semi-precious stones, shells, and even tiny flowers captured in resin. Each piece is accentuated by silver alloys or precious metals, and represents the tradition of fine Mexican jewelry .
