Why We're Different

Cuervo ArtisansWe care about our artisans.

We invest in the future of our artisans.

Our sister company is Cuervo Metal, located in Taxco, Mexico. We work intimately with over 45 independent artisan workshops, ranging in size from 1 to 8 people, to produce our jewelry. Some of the artisans have been with us for over 20 years, and we're committed to their livelihood and preserving the tradition of silversmithing for their children. To assist our artisans we practice the following:

Central Shop Facility:

We provide a workshop in our Taxco office that is used daily by our artisans at no charge. It's outfitted with equipment and tooling that is not typically available to small shops. We also offer equipment consignment, so some of these tools can be used in the artisan's own workshops.

Technical Support:

We offer free workshops to introduce new techniques and tools, address safety considerations and discuss production issues.

Interest Free Loans:

We offer interest free loans to help our artisans invest in their own businesses and for personal uses.

No Middleman:

By working directly with the artisan, we eliminate the cost of the middleman, which helps us all stay competitive.

Education Fund:

We have been working on ways to give rewards to the artisans children when they get good grades in school.

Daily Workshop Supervision:

We have a dedicated person who visits the workshops daily to help prioritize work, check quality, problem solve production and discuss seasonal demand.

Open Door Policy

We're interested in long-term relationships with our suppliers. For this reason, they have access to everyone within our organization. We recognize that we have a symbiotic relationship with the artisan community, and we strive to keep the exchange of ideas flowing in both directions.
