This rustic silver piece is designed in Dallas, TX and handmade in a small village in the Central Highlands of Mexico. Each silver piece will be slightly unique and have a finish that looks somewhat vintage. The turquoise used is hand selected at the creator's shop in Dallas with only the best stones making the product cut. The work is done by one family and all the tooling is done by hand, no presses or stamps! The metal is German Silver, an alloy consisting of copper, nickel, and zinc. The vintage finish will last for years with nothing more than an occasional dusting with a soft dry cloth.
