We work hard to make sure all our Earrings and other Jewelry are pretty and something you would want to wear! We use lampwork beads, real glass enamels, glass beads, stone beads and anything else that would produce a nice jewelry piece. Please feel free to convo us with any suggestions or desires!

"Hola!” (Which means Hello!) From Mexico! Seven years ago, I relocated from Tucson, Arizona to the small, fairly remote agricultural village in Morelos, 2 hours drive from Mexico City. I fell in love with this community and the people here, so to give something back, five years ago I began an apprenticeship with the goal of teaching marketable skills. This has allowed 6 young women an alternative way to provide for themselves and enabled them to “retire” from the back-breaking manual labor in the fields where they previously worked 12 to 14 hour days six or seven days per week for very little pay. At the time, field work was the only employment option available to them.

In our workshop, they have learned several skills and art forms, including lampworking, glass enameling on copper, jewelry design, metalwork, soldering, computer skills, photography, limited English writing, reading and comprehension, math skills and small business management. The abilities they gain also allow these individuals to experience the “American dream” in their own country and remain here in Mexico with their families. I recently had some very serious health issues and these gals took such good care of me and kept the workshop going as well, so they are very serious about this venture. Some of them now have new homes, they are simple 1 room constructions, but they are so proud of what they have accomplished.

What you see in our Etsy store is the culmination of many individual efforts as a team. Thank you for looking, and know that your purchase enables more individuals to learn marketable skills and meet the needs of their loved ones. Please convo us if you have any questions at all. We love the relationships we share with our customers and the opportunity it provides to glimpse other parts of the world! It is so inspiring, and we learn so much from you. Thank you for looking at our shop!
