Two wrong turns make a right

Handcrafted in Taxco, Mexico

She said take the exit towards San Gabriel. From my calculations we were still about three hours from Mexico City, which also meant about three hours from a steaming plate of Enfrijoladas. But my wife is an outstanding navigator, so I took the ramp. A few miles later she said take a left. Turns out we were on the road to Taxco. I didn’t know it at the time, but this detour not only resulted in her finding her favorite piece of jewelry, it introduced me to an entire community of world-class jewelry craftsmen. 

Taxco is a gem of a town in Guerrero Mexico, with steep cobblestone streets, striking Spanish colonial architecture, and rust-red roofs tangled in bougainvillea. Once a booming silver mining town, Taxco is renowned for its silver –– in fact, it’s been dubbed Mexico’s silver capital –– so I knew the jewelry had to be truly outstanding. Spoiler:  it was. In a small shop we met Tracy and she introduced us to stunningly-beautiful handcrafted artisan jewelry. Generations of talent and passion were evident in their creations. 

The red jasper ring you see here caught my wife’s eye. Gorgeous red jasper possesses an intriguing matrix much like turquoise and is one of the oldest stones used in jewelry, dating to 1800 B.C. Embraced in Taxco’s legendary silver, this stone shines like the desert sun. And, when you go out of your way to go shopping, you tend to get a pretty good deal. A deal I’m happy to pass along. It seems my wife’s exit strategy worked out beautifully.
