These beautiful pieces of jewelry are each individually handcrafted by artisans in Morelia, Mexico. All of the pieces contain real, all-natural, miniature flowers encapsulated in sterling silver. Each flower undergoes a special process of cultivation. When the flower buds bloom, they are cut and put through a very delicate dehydration treatment in order to preserve the flowers' all-natural colors and fresh appearance. They are then set into a transparent mix of resins that is seven times stronger than crystal, and set in the sterling silver pieces of jewelry.

|Review:||Although the beaded images of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the bracelet are exquisite, the links are too fragile. Every time I wore it, the bracelet would come apart. I took it to a jeweler to reinforce the links, but to no avail. The beads broke off the links as well. The craftsmanship isn't very good.|
