Glowing with the hues of the sun, a honey-colored orb of natural amber is featured in the pendant of this necklace from Mexico. Juan Garcia uses the artisanal skills that he has been developing from a young age, framing the amber with a sterling silver pendant. It depicts the sun as it moves to eclipse the crescent moon.
Juan has continued to pass down the traditional techniques he uses in his artwork to his children in order to preserve the significance his culture holds in their crafts. He has also been credited with honorable mentions and prizes in popular art competitions in the state.
Juan has built his workshop and is now able to employ people from the community. He has been able to teach them how to preserve artistic traditions in all the jewelry they create.
