WE HAVE CREATED NEW PIECES IN OUR SHOP.
THE MATERIALS WE UTILIZE IN OUR NEW JEWELRY
ARE FINE PEWTER, SEASHELLS, & COCONUT SHELL.

HEMP: THIS MATERIAL IS A NATURAL FIBRE
AND VERY RESISTANT FOR MACRAME WORK.
IT LENDS ITSELF FOR WEAVING WITH FACILITY.

SEASHELL THE SHELL OF ABALONE IS A NATURAL MEXICAN RESOURCE FROM OUR PACIFIC OCEAN COASTS AND OUR ARTESANS ARE SPECIALISTS IN WORKING THIS MATERIAL.

COCONUT THE COCONUT IS A NATURAL RESOURCE THAT WE WANT TO INCLUDE IN OUR LINE SINCE THIS MATERIAL JUST AS THE SEA SHELL WE CAN OBTAIN IN OUR COUNTRY, OUR STATE OF GUERRERO HAS MANY COASTS WHERE PLANTATIONS OF COCONUT PALMS ARE FOUND.

THE BEADS WE USE AS THE TERMINATIONS OF THE WRISTLETS AND NECKLACES ARE MADE OF WOOD, AS A NATURAL MATERIAL IT IS INCLUDED IN OUR NEW LINE

WE IN ARTCAMP WERE SINCE THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER CREATING AND DESIGNING A NEW LINE WHERE WE COULD COMBINE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WORK THAT WE KNOW HOW TO DO INCLUDING HEMP, SEASHELLS, WOOD, COCONUT SHELL AND OUR PEWTER JEWELRY.

FOR US, IT IS SOMETHING FUN BUT ALSO WE KNOW THAT IT IS A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY SINCE UPON THAT DEPENDS THE WORK FOR MANY OF OUR ARTISANS AND THEIR FAMILIES

WHEN WE CREATED THIS LINE
WE HAD TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
VERY IMPORTANT POINTS
TO OBTAIN A GOOD PRODUCT.

1. FIRST WE HAD TO KNOW THE COSTS
SO THAT THE PRODUCT WOULD NOT BE TOO EXPENSIVE,

2. THAT IT BE LABORIOUS BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE
SO THAT THE ARTISANS COULD MAKE IT IN SERIES,
QUICKLY AND WITH QUALITY, AND THAT

3. OUR MATERIALS BE OF MEXICAN ORIGEN AND THUS WE WOULD BE ABLE TO COME OUT WITH A GOOD PRODUCT, PRETTY, AND INEXPENSIVE; A CREATION YOUNG PEOPLE
WILL LIKE WE HAD TO COMBINE ALL THIS
IN ORDER TO REALIZE THE NEW FASHION JEWELRY.

FINE PEWTER IS AN ALLOY OF TIN
-IT IS VERY PURE
AND IT DOES NOT OXIDIZE,
IT DOESNT STAIN THE SKIN,
IT DOESNT CONTAIN NIKEL,
IT DOESNT CONTAIN CADMIUM, IT DOESNT
CONTAIN ZINC. FINE PEWTER IS AN EXCELLENT MATERIAL OF COSTUME AND FASHION JEWELRY. CONTAINS A MINIMAL QUANTITY OF PURE SILVER TO GUIV THE BRILLIANCE
THAT DISTINGUISHES THIS JEWELRY FROM ANY OTHER
FASHION JEWELRY. MANY TRADITIONAL SILVERSMITHING TECHNIQUES ARE USED IN MAKING OF PEWTER JEWELRY.

IN OUR JEWELRY WE HAVE A LOT OF PRETTY PIECES,
ALL THESE PIECES ARE MADE SPECIALLY TO INITIATE THE PROCESS. THESE PIECES ARE CALLED “ORIGINAL MODELS”
THERE ARE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES TO MAKE ORIGINAL MODELS :
SAWING, SOLDERING, SCULPTING, ETCETERA

THEN WE ENCHARGE OURSELVES TO PERFECT THEM
TO BE ABLE TO REALIZE A MODEL MOLD,
WE PREPARE THE MOLDS ACCORDING TO THE CHARACTERISITCS OF THE PIECES,
IN PIE MOLDS OF BLACK RUBBER.

OF THIS “MODEL MOLD” IS CAST
VARIOUS SECOND-GENERATION ORIGINALS
TO MAKE A NEW MOLD,
WITH MULTIPLE IMPRESSIONS OF THE CASTINGS
PRODUCED BY 1ST MOLD,
THE MODEL MOLD, MOLDE A

THESE PIECES WE HAVE TO CLEAN THEM
VERY WELL WITH A FILE
AND THEN PASS THE SAND WHEEL OVER THEIR SURFACES.
IF THEY ARE PENDANTS 10 PIECES COULD BE IN THE B MOLD
SO THEREFORE WE HAVE TO FIX TEN ORIGINAL MODELS
AND PERFECT THEM FOR THE B MOLD.

THE MOLD WITH 10 IMPRESSIONS,
WE CALL THE PRODUCTION MOLD
IT TAKES A DAY TO MAKE A MOLD
WE CAN MAKE UP TO THREE MOLDS A DAY.

WHEN THE PRODUCTION MOLD IS READY, THE PERSONS IN CHARGE OF THE CASTING PROVE THE MOLD TO KNOW IF SOME CUT IS NEEDED TO OPEN THE CHANNELS
THROUGH WHICH FLOWS THE MOLTEN METAL
AND THOSE BY WHICH THE AIR ESCAPES,
TO SERVE TO CAST THE PIECES IN PRODUCTION,
ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH IS REQUIRED.

PRODUCTS ARE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY

Our products are of the highest quality
and we are proud of them. The metal we use
is certified no-nickel alloy of fine pewter with silver.

This is the pure casting alloy of tin, copper,
and antimony. The brilliant appearance
comes from the craftsperson’s art of finishing.

The more our customers know about our products the more valuable they are,
whether our customer re-sells our production,
or whether she wears our pieces herself.

For you, here is a guide and definitions
of jewelry terminology and of various
types of materials used in making good jewelry.
