"Nice & dainty~"

Theyre a sweet pair of earrings; quality is good & price was fair...I was, however a bit disappointed in the lackluster color of the stones, they appeared a deeper blue online; also, I didnt really care for the hammered effect on the curls...Ill probably gift them to someone for Christmas!

Preserving Traditions

Exposed to the unique designs of pre-Hispanic culture by his father, an archeologist and museum curator, Teodoro turned his interest into a livelihood.

Through his family workshop, he continues to pass these techniques to other artisans.
