In this wristband bracelet hand crafted by the Weaving Hands of Atitlán from Guatemala, the artisans create stunning patterns by weaving glass beads of various shapes and sizes in an earthy color palette. The bracelet closes with a magnesite button clasp.
The Weaving Hands of Atitlán are a group of women from Santa Cruz La Laguna in Sololá, near Lake Atitlán, who grew up weaving. About their work, the artisans say: “We want people to be curious about our town and our craft. We are inspired by nature, the lake, the beaches — basically all of Guatemala, because it is so beautiful! We dream about bringing our creations to the world so that people may enjoy them and have something they find special.”

"Lovely, Well-made Piece"
I am very pleased with the bracelet: lovely mix of earth-tone colored beads that are very tightly woven. It does seem a bit tight, but fits. My only complaint would be the clasp: a bead and some kind of twine. It is very difficult to get on and off by yourself- the bead (nice turquoise) is just a bit too big or the loop a bit too tight. I am hoping that it will loosen up as it gets worn and used.
