María : The women behind the beads

María

"I am 24 years old, I live in Santiago Atítlan. I have been part of this cooperative for more than five years now, but I have done bead work since I was 13 years old. I really like to make products for another part of the world because it helps me support my family and it gives me other opportunities than I have here".

María works mainly with our beaded earrings, she has an amazing talent for turning any design idea we have into life, just by seeing a foto or talking about.
