It’s day two of the creation of Huichol Beaded prayer bowls, or jicaras. This art is made using smaller beads, often called micro beads, that are not as available in Mexico. As a result the art is extremely detailed and amazing.
To see beaded bowls that are available for purchase click here where you will see a good selection, each one of them unique.
Here a chunk of beeswax mixture, called campeche, is kneaded and spread on the surface inside the bowl to make a thin, consistent layer into which the beads will be placed.
Join us tomorrow for day 3 where the beads start being place.
