Hojalata (tin art work) is such a fun, beautiful expression of Mexican folk art. I find the work irresistible. Strong and light, tin is a humble but great medium for art. Oaxaca has a strong tradition of tin art, turning tin into all kinds of beautiful home goods. It is harder to find tin art jewelry, which is why I had to snatch these up.
