Details

A man carries a hieroglyph on his back as he pauses to rest with his heavy load. He is known as Mam, or the "carrier of time." According to Maya legend, his role is to carry the weight of a full year upon his back, represented by the Haab glyph that he bears. Angel Ortiz works in Mexico's legendary sterling silver, mined in Taxco, to craft this original necklace. The pendant is worn on a long cord of black rubber.

"Beautiful Carrier of Time Pendant!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I was drawn to Angel's Carrier of Time pendant when I saw it. He travels with all who are struggling and burdened that year so they are not alone. He also carries a glyph for life force or sun which adds more to the meaning of bringing support, life, and hope to others. It has a nice heft and will always carry special meaning for me. Angel, I hope you pursue a series featuring endangered animals. They need our help also and would benefit from your artistry and care to detail. Thank you for creating such a beautiful message with this pendant!

"MEANINGFUL PIECE!"

This was purchased for many reasons- the symbol, where the silver was mined, the Mayan culture and a 25th anniversary gift. It is perfect in so many ways to my husband and myself not to mention the beauty and detail!

What a handsome piece of jewelry! It has great weight, and feels nice around the neck. My son scooped it up and put it on. He loves it! Just wish it was on a chain. Thank you Angel. We will look for more of his works of art!

I bought this for myself. This piece has already gotten a few complements. It is really a nice size and looks good on this guy. Not too big and not too small. I will be buying from Angel again!

"A real conversation starter!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I fell in love with the axolotls cute face, and became interested in finding out more about this increasingly rare salamander. I hope the spotlight Angel Ortiz has placed on it with his artistic rendition will help in slowing down the race to extinction that the Axolotl is facing due to pollution and loss of habitat.

"Striking Grinning Calavera ring"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love calaveras and have a few in my house I really wanted a calavera ring, but unfortunately most of them are made for men. This ring is perfect! A merry calavera, she is quite beautifully designed by Angel Ortiz, and is of high quality. I just love her! I find the silver jewelry from Mexico (Taxco) to be very solid and well made, while silver jewelry from elsewhere can look substantial but seem tinny when it arrives. I would order any of Angel Ortizs jewelry with confidence! I just love the ring and most likely will order more jewelry from him in the future.
