The legacy of William Spratling is the powerful motivator
of a collaboration between the last of the generation of Taxco master silversmiths
and the rural women artisans of Tecalpulco, a village in the Municipio of Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero.

The jewelry employs old-fashioned jewelry-making arts
to fashion ornamental esthetic objects worthy of a museum.

Every piece coming from this shop is a perfect reproduction
of the unique original masterworks of William Spratling.

Maestro Marcial Chavez Embriz and the women artisans re-create these timeless pieces.
