The lotus flower, a symbol of transformation, begins life underwater, growing petals, stem, and leaves while still buried underground, nourished by nutrients in the dark mud.
"It remains balled up tightly, until the flower is fully formed, and only then slowly makes its way to the surface. Upon emerging to reveal its potential, the lotus remains anchored, connected to the depths from which it grew."
Let these earrings, handcrafted by female artisans in Mexico to resemble a pink lotus flower, remind you of the importance of both rising to the surface to bloom and honoring the depths from which your growth arose.
ArtCamp, short for Artesanas Campesinas, is a collective of female artisans in Tecalpulco, Mexico. The collective formed in the 90’s as a way for local women to gain business and jewelry design skills, in a rural area where opportunities for women are limited.
The jewelry line includes semi-precious stones, ethically sourced abalone, flower, and upcycled materials.
Ethically Sourced Abalone
As the over harvesting of wild abalone can damage ocean ecosystems, all Artisana jewelry is made with ethically sourced shell from carefully selected abalone farms.
