Texas Trivia

A chain of five missions established along the San Antonio River in the 18th century became the largest concentration of Catholic missions in North America. Built primarily to expand Spanish New World influence northward from Mexico, the missions also served to introduce native inhabitants into Spanish society. Four of the missions (San Jose, San Juan, Concepcion, and Espada) were originally founded in East Texas. As the East Texas missions succumbed to drought, malaria, and French incursions, however, they were relocated to San Antonio. The missions flourished during the middle of the 18th century, but later declined due to inadequate military support, disease, and increased hostilities with Apaches and Comanches.

While we developed this site to feature our unique creations featuring the Official State Stone, the Lone Star Cut Blue Topaz (Click here to see the largest known Lone Star Cut topaz), we soon began to realize that there were many other unique offerings from many talented, many Native Texan, artists that should be shared with the rest of the State.
We found Artesanos that worked with Colored Stones, Sterling Silver, Hill Country Lime Stone and so many types of mediums that it blew our minds.

From handcrafted jewelry and craft items from the Native Texans of piney woods of East Texas, or Tejano crafts from the true artesanos of the South Texas Borders, Wood and Native Texas Limestone creations from the Hill Country, various crafts shared from the coastal regions, items hewn with care from North Texas and the Red River Valley, and even the rare Concho Pearls from West Texas, we are here to bring it all together for you.
