Intro
Hard to Find is located in Guadalajara, Mexico, recently opened on 2013, and hosting workshops for recognized jewelers and artists from all over the world, as long as a one year program for people who is interested in jewellery as a way of expression and as a way of living.
We have got knowledge from other continents. We have searched for the great masters in big cities, on the big issues.
We have witnessed the enormous cost of ignorance and the way it enslaves the sufferers.
We have also seen how the one who learns takes off. How they give more light to the world with their knowledge and talent.
We want to bring the knowledge of great masters to the great passionate. We want to open paths for discovery, to show what did not exist.
We want to be the place where those who already know get passion infected and those who are thirsty of knowledge awake to new possibilities.
