12-Strand Beaded Bracelet - A Variety of Colors
- Customer Reviews (0)
Our beaded bracelets are handmade by Maya women artisans using the highest quality Czech glass beads and crystals, and durable professional beading thread. Czech glass beads, when viewed under a microscope, refract light in complicated ways, leading them to be quite vibrant. They are durable, colorfast, and smooth.
Our bracelets close easily with a toggle closure: one end has beaded loops and the other a T-shaped piece that slips into one of the loops, depending on how tight or loose you would like the bracelet to be. All very sturdy!
Beading in Guatemala expanded greatly after a beading artist came from California several decades ago and started a beading group in Santiago Atitlán, training the women to make high quality beaded items. She still has a Fair Trade beading group and a number of the women who worked with her have started their own groups. Now there is so much beading done in Guatemala that there are bead importers and wholesalers in Guatemala City.
