In the Spratling Renaissance Silver Jewelry Workshop

Maria Nieves Perez Gomez of Artcamp "Artesanas ampesinas"
of Tecalpulco, Municipio de Taxco, Guerrero Mexico
is being trained in classical fine silversmithing technique
by Don Marcial Chavez Embriz, the master original-modelmaker
of William Spratling, the multi-talented and venerable father
of the world-famous modern silver jewelry industry of Taxco.

The classical silversmithing of Taxco has been disappearing in recent decades
asthe Taxco silversmiths have been forced to work cheaper and cheaper:
thus the historical, cultural economic importance of the alliance of the rural
Tecalpulco womens' artisans cooperative and a master original model maker .
