These strand necklaces are handcrafted from colorful glass and gold plated seed beads on a stretch cord. They look great worn on their own, layered, or wrapped as a bracelet. This strand is handmade in a fair trade workshop in Guatemala.
Altiplano is based in southern Vermont and Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Working with many cooperative groups, small family businesses, and our own fair trade workshop, we are committed to creating innovative products that support indigenous communities. In addition, our continued partnerships in the region support education, family nutrition, and the environment.
We are most grateful for our ability to make a difference, and to you, for supporting us in our ongoing effort to bring fair trade and employment to the Guatemalan Highlands.
