You can meet artisans of all kinds at the Market. I was intrigued by all her silver bracelets, any one of which was awesome, but taken together the effect was stunning. My personal fave was one featuring a variety of sea mammals. The producer selling from one of the day stalls looked so colorful in her sunburst tie dye shirt that I asked to take this shot isolating her bracelets against that intense color. Now I regret that I didn't chat with her more and ask her name. She told me that she never removes the bracelets, and I was impressed. I did that with a little silver band my dad brought me from a trip to Mexico when I was 7 or 8. I wore it night and day for so long that dad finally had to cut it off with tin snips because my arm had grown and it was tight around my wrist. She is very much enjoying wearing her artful creations.
