Yellow Pendant Earrings
The woven earrings are made using a loom that is a combination of backstrap and pedals.
They represent the craft of an artisan from Totocinapan, Quetzaltenango. The artisan is one of the last people to use this technique, and this art has been taught through generations, but today it has been lost.
