Product Description

An exquisite necklace made by some of the best Guatemalan fair trade jewelry craftswomen.  Multiple strands of Czechoslovakian beads are combined into a long necklace, linked together by sections of beads woven together in a tubular shape. Looks great over sweaters and as an eye-catching touch of bling for dressy evening wear.

If you're looking for coordinating earrings, either the Woven Beads earrings or Princesa earrings work quite nicely. Both are available in a variety of colors.  

It hangs about 15" from the neck.

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.
