About this item: A shining, sky blue color speckled with burnt orange characterizes this wristband bracelet, with petite silvery crosses along the length. Handcrafted by the Guatemalan artisans at Weaving Hands of Atitlan, the bracelet features three strands of glass beaded nylon cord that run side-by-side for a sparkling look inspired by the wondrous beauty of the ocean.
About our Artist: 'Hello, my name is Rosa Hernandes and I belong to a group of women who grew up weaving in Sololá, near Lake Atitlan. Like most girls, we were taught to weave our own clothes and all of the textiles used in the home. We weave to earn our daily bread. This art allows us to work in our homes and take care of our children. People like our work a lot. We are very meticulous and we like to do our work well. We are still dedicated to weaving other things in our looms, but this craft is a new way to earn incomes and imprint our patterns and designs in another form that isn't with thread. We dream about being able to bring our creations to the world so that people may enjoy them and be special pieces for someone. We want people to be curious about our town and our craft. We are inspired by nature, the lake, the beaches - basically all of Guatemala, because it is so beautiful!'...
