Our Santiago Birds collection of adjustable necklaces are some of our most astounding pieces. The textile used is embroidered with colourful birds. This type of embroidered textile is made in the town of Santiago Atitlan, where the local artisans are famously skilled embroiderers of bird designs. When you touch this beautiful textile, you can feel the patterns and the amazing technique used to make it.
Below the textile, we have added our famous lines of ceramic beads in various colours and design details making these eye-catching pieces truly stand out.
For this specific collection, we have added precious and semi-precious stones in the middle of each bead strand. This really adds an extra dimension to the necklace making it fall elegantly and symmetrical on the chest. See each necklace name to learn what precious minerals our artisans added to the necklace.
Everything in this necklace is handmade by local artisans in Guatemala.
