Hand Beaded Necklace - Shimmering Turquoise and GoldDesigner: Posh Bead Shop
This hand strung twelve strand beaded necklace was a delightful discovery in a family owned shop in a community next to Lake Atitlan. The owners and the artisans are indigenous Kaquichel Mayans. They speak the Kaqchiquel language (not Spanish) in their home and amongst locals. All of their creations are inspired by local styles and the designs are born by the creative imaginations of the woman who meticulously craft each piece. We love the shimmering, multi-strand look of this eye-catching necklace. You will love dressing it up or using it to embellish casual outfits.
