Martha Carvajal is the creator of these awesome pieces and also my mother from Mexico. They are so finely made and her hardwork reflects on each oif them. If you own one of her pieces you will know for sure they are very well made. This is the right choice if you want to wear a beautiful hand made light weight and soft silky feel jewelry. Soutaches are totally made with materials from around the world. Swarovski crystals, cabochons from India and Australia, Ribbons from Europe and Russia, to be finally assembled by Martha.
