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 necklace is stunning and well made. It fits my neck perfectly but could be a little longer. The clamp is one of a kind; my concern is what happens if I break the loop. I'm very careful putting on and taking off. The colors are magnificent and I had many compliments when worn. The set can be worn at work, evening, and too unique to wear casually.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
