Product Description

Multiple strands of Czechoslovakian glass beads and semi-precious stones befit the name of this elegant beauty.  Mayan women from the Guatemalan highlands use traditional weaving and beading techniques to hand craft the necklaces.  The necklace is approximately 20" long. Available in a number of eye-catching colors.  Most necklaces have matching earrings and bracelet.


Artist's Story:

Women artisans from the highlands of Guatemala use traditional beading techniques to create this elegant jewelry. These indigenous women are among the most economically disadvantaged residents of Guatemala. They work under strict fair trade conditions, meaning their wages are 3-5 times higher than average in their economy, their work environment is safe and pleasant, and they receive health care and skills training.

    i saw a similar version of this in catalog several years ago, I cut out the page but not the catalog name. I recently read a little of its description, so I googled fair trade and I was so glad to actually realize i could order it. I love it! I love the beads, the fit, the clasp, and I could go on!! thank you ladies for your fine workmanship. and thanks for the free keychain.

    I love the color of the beads in the matching set of earrings, bracelet, and necklace. I would recommend them to anyone. I like the idea that my purchase is helping the craftsman earn a living.
