“What you are the world is. And without your transformation, there can be no transformation of the world.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti
Paying homage to their Aztec ancestors, Mexican women artisans handcraft this pendant into a symbol of Cuahtli, the day of the Aztec calendar associated with goddess Xipe Totec.
Xipe Totec is the God of seeds, rebirth, and the shedding of skin, often associated with transformation and new seasons of life.
Ethically Sourced Abalone
The magic iridescence of the abalone shell is the result of layers of tessellated crystal formed on the shell of stunning sea snails.
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.

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.
