The Tz‘utujil are one of the smallest of the ethnic subgroups that make up Maya culture. Living in the Lago de Atitlan region of Guatemala, they raise coffee and maize in addition to welcoming tourists who are drawn by Tz‘utujil painting, weaving, and beadwork. The beaded medallions in this colorful jewelry are handcrafted by Tz‘utujil artisans using glass seed beads and Czech fire-polished glass crystals.
The earrings are absolutely beautiful. Wore them to work with a lt. green outfit and everyone noticed the jewelry immediately. I love the earrings design and colors; matches most outfits in my closet. My only compliant is that they are a little long and the tip bends slightly. I constantly straighten them.
