The jewelry that we carry is from groups of Huichol Indians of Mexico and Mayan Indians of Guatemala. The quality of our jewelry is very high. Necklaces and bracelets never break. The ball-and-loop fastenings are always a perfect fit. Because of this high quality we guarantee them. If there are ever any problems, please contact us for a replacement.
The beauty of this jewelry is hard to capture in pictures so please be sure to use the photo expander feature when you view them in our shop. All our jewelry is heirloom quality and fair trade!
The Huichol jewelry is made using two needles instead of a loom. Needles require much more skill than a loom, and the subsequent work is breathtaking.
Necklaces come in a large assortment of colors and are made using very tiny size 15 seed beads interspersed with larger faceted accent beads. The work is extremely fine and they are very comfortable to wear.
Bracelets are made using very unique and beautiful color combinations and a variety of patterns. They feel silky smooth on the wrist and are highly durable, due to the use of the very tiny size 15 seed beads. When selecting bracelets, the main issue is which one to pick; they are all so beautiful and unique! The ball-and-loop fastenings offer two different sizes.
Earrings are classic Huichol designs but constructed with very tiny size 15 seed beads. Other accent bead shapes are incorporated, making them truly unique. They are stunning in their detail, color combinations and workmanship. Earrings come in three sizes. We also carry other Huichol earrings with larger size beads.
