Hand-beaded Keychain Set - Quetzal
These precious beaded keychains will give a tropical touch to everything they surround!
Light will be sprinkled by the tiny Quetzal bird, whose majestic beauty has inspired a myriad of legends and myths: the ancient Mayans portrayed the great Kukulkan, the Feathered-Serpent, wearing the iridescent and charming plumage of the Quetzal.
Today, this incredible animal symbolises the vibrant and passionate soul of Guatemala, even appearing at the centre of its National flag.
Our weavers honored its intense colors and unique silhouette by using the beading technique of Lake Atitlán, in Sololá: this ancient art belongs to the Tz’utujil Mayans and consists in intertwining dazzling glass beads to create refined embroideries.
Check these lovely crafts out and be embraced by their cheerful personality!
