Chameleon Beaded Ornament
- Customer Reviews (0)
Our chameleon ("gamaleon" in Spanish) ornament ring/backpack charm is handmade by Maya women artisans using high quality Czech glass beads and 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.
Colors vary: green, red, blue.
Stuffed with recycled plastic bags to help it keep its shape!
Super-popular with kids and adults alike! Perfect as key rings, backpack ornaments, and ornaments for the tree or around the house.
Not appropriate for children under three years of age.
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.
