Mexico, like every country in the world, has an abundance of jewellery. However most of it is poor quality, manufactured plastic. As I travel I always have my eye out for quality and high fashion jewellery and in Puerto Escondido I found just that.
After escaping the heat to refill our water bottles we stumbled across a jewellery store that was in the process of being built. My dream jewellery layout to be exact, a working space in the back half with jewellery benches and an abundance of tools with a store front and gallery to show off and sell the final products.
After chatting for close to an hour with the couple who were building the shop we found out they too had travelled Central America making and selling jewellery. They owned a boutique in Paris and Puerto Escondido was now going to be their home base to make and showcase their beautiful creations.
Like me, they work with a lot of silver, they solder rings, earrings and bracelets. We exchanged info and continued on our day excited about our new likeminded friends!
