Our parents and our grandparents gave to us an important tradition of handcraft jewelry making,

as a native women artisan group forming a production cooperative. We are the original Designers and Producers and Creators. As Artisans, we have a very old training, coming from our prior generations. Since the 1970′s and 1980′s, the popular Abalone Jewelry was made in our home town. We are proud of every piece that we create and make, and employ precise and exact techniques
of labor intense, quality handcraft in the local cottage industry.  abalone jewelry making goes far far beyond our little village cooperative, it reaches way out in the mountains to tiny ranchos
where the family makes this jewelry.  All this production of the humble people of this area is collected by the local wholesalers on a consignment basis and otherwise it is offered for sale in Taxco’s famous Saturday tianguis market where, due to intense competition among the many poor artisans, the buyers go around comparing in order to get the very lowest price from them.  This disgraceful tianguis is something we really hate.  Our aunts and cousins have gone there to sell at different time and we know how humiliating it is to have to stand there all day with a woven
basket in your hand, the buyers treating you like a servant.

 One reason this cooperativa was
formed was to get OUT of the situation we were in as traditional craftspeople
and to find a way to have our abilities work for us.
