Guatemalan Pine Needle Tear Drop Bracelet - Large Wrist

Item #  
Central America
This handcrafted pine needle tear drop shaped bracelet was created in the Cloud Forest of Guatemala. The accenting of gold thread adds a touch of elegance to this unique eco piece of jewelry.

"In my community we all have many dreams, and selling our crafts helps us to see that our goals need not be impossible anymore," Lydia López explained. Chilascó is a tiny rural town located in the cloud forests of eastern Guatemala. The town is renowned for its natural beauty, including one of the tallest waterfalls in Central America. While the town is rich in natural resources, economic resources are much harder to come by. However the Chilascó Artisan Group, made up of 19 women and one man, is working to turn some of these natural resources into income to help their families. Due to the fact that Chilascó is located in a cloud forest, pine trees surround the town and the women of Chilascó have a long running tradition of weaving the pine needles. In order to obtain their primary materials, all they need to do is gather the needles from the forest floor and buy the thread.

The tear drops are each 2 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches wide. Bracelet is 9 1/2 inches long and fits better to a larger wrist.
