Lucia's Import's Beaded Mayan Jewelry from Guatemala
Today, many Mayan women still weave and wear their traditional costumes that originated during the Spanish conquest. Due to economic pressures, most Mayan women in Guatemala struggle to continue to use their traditional weaving skills. Lucia's Imports works with the Mayan women around the shores of Lake Atitlan to transform their beautiful weaving tradition into hand beaded jewelry. Acquiring new skills and a market for their jewelry creates hope and prosperity for many artisans who can now work in their homes.
