Hand-hammered beauty, painstakingly etched by hand, lined with velvet, and set with a treasure-hunter's delight in unique and hand-polished stones. This one features a polished white onyx cabochon, but many of these, all created by our newest artesana, Ruth Cortez of San Miguel de Allende, feature stones hand-picked by her for beauty and character.
No two are exactly alike, and these crafted treasure boxes (ok, they are very practical too, jewelry boxes, men's valets, keepsake holders, curio and trinket boxes, special occasion commemorative gifts, the sky is the limit) are created slowly in beautiful colonial Mexico for you to treasure.
The boxes themselves are made of Alpaca Silver, a unique blend of nickel silver, copper and zinc that is durable, lustrous and will never tarnish.

Hand-crafted with the use of custom-made forms, the Rustica Gift & Pottery line of Mexican pewter is imported from a family-owned studio in Mexico's craft-and-tradition-rich Guanajuato region. Our studio has been custom-making their pewter for over 25 years, with daughter Jalal now overseeing their excellent craftsmanship.
You'll want to gather up armfuls of the abundant, exotic bouquets of richly-colored, hand-crafted Mayolica fond in our Colores collection. The richly-colored, hand-painted flowers stand out in dramatic contract to the deep gold and dark toned background of these pottery pieces. Beautiful, hand-crafted, rich in tradition and durability, these are pieces to collect and love.
