ABOUT THE ARTISANS
The artisans who make this jewelry are part of a fair trade cooperative in the Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala. The women are not only paid fair wages but are able to work from home so they can take care of their children while becoming financially independent. The cooperative has grown over the past 20 years to employ more and more women who are improving their lives and becoming self-sufficient.
