How do you like these alpaca boxes, napkin holders and earrings? These are made of an alloy of silver, called “Alpaca” in Mexico
but also known as nickel silver or “German silver.”
These pieces are lovely, shiny and so much less expensive than silver. AND, they do not tarnish, so no need to use elbow grease.
These are available at GUILD Collective or contact me (with the handy form below) for prices and sizes.
Happy Three Kings Day!

These are silver earrings with the exception of the lower right corner. That’s a very long necklace made of nickel silver.
Most people know that Mexico is famous for silver jewelry and most people associate that jewelry with Taxco. Taxco is a mecca for silver lovers–the streets are lined with silver shops. But did you know that there are other cities in Mexico that are home to silver artisans? Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca and several other towns are home to many men and women who make traditional hammered and filigree silver earrings like their predecessors learned from the Spanish conquerors. The craftsmanship of these silver earrings is exquisite. Some of them have clips and others are for pierced ears.

These handmade earrings are mostly made of “alpaca” or nickel silver. Prices range from $12 for the inlaid crescents to $18 for the others. The great advantage of using nickel silver in jewelry is that it doesn’t tarnish. So, they stay shiny without using any elbow grease. These earrings come from two different places–the states of Guanajuato and Guerrero. There are a couple of sacred hearts (our most popular seller), some hands (remember Picasso gave Frida Kahlo hand earrings which she wears in several of her paintings), some ovals and then the inlaid arracada, a typical Mexican shape in earrings.
If you’re interested in any of these you can purchase them online, right here.
