This striking circle cluster necklace in reds and browns is skillfully crafted by the talented Mayan women artisans of Vida Dulce by Kristen. Adding interest to any outfit, it is sure to be an eye-catcher!
From the hills of the Guatemalan highlands, these artisans crochet delicate glass seed beads to make striking designs imbued with the color and vibrancy of the Mayan culture. As much of the Indigenous Mayan population in Guatemala live disproportionately in poverty, these handicrafts provide women artisans with a valuable source of income. Part of the proceeds from all Vida Dulce jewelry also go Pueblo a Pueblo, a non-profit initiative that works to better and empower the lives of Mayans in the Guatemalan Highlands through nutrition and education programs.
When you buy a Vida Dulce earring you are not only supporting Mayan women artisans, you are also investing in their communities!
