Mariana Barranco

Mariana Barranco, Handcrafted Jewelry is a trademark based in Oaxaca that seeks the re-interpretation of handcrafting techniques made of natural products like black mud and carved small cups to turn them into a jewel.  Mariana works with artisans from Oaxaca and diverse foundations looking to provide employment for women who are fully in charge of their homes, and to groups of people from different towns who receive a fair compensation for their products without a middleman trying to take advantage of their vulnerability in business and sometimes the language. With Mariana’s experience handling metal and professional personnel in the jewelry trade, they transform these pieces into unique jewelry pieces with original designs. Their pieces are generally for sale in museums, galleries and specialized boutiques where these pieces make handicrafts stand out.
