Life's gifts are many, but none more meaningful than the gift of helping others. Each pewter rectangular pendant is hung on a silver plated chain and finished with a tiny colored tassel. This necklace is great alone or layered and is handmade and fairly traded from a women's craft organization in Guatemala. This special collection of inspirational charm jewelry brings opportunities to women artisans of Kiej de los Bosques in Guatemala, women like Alejandra.

Alejandra had to leave school at the age of 13 to work as a maid in Guatemala City. She was married young and moved back to the rural village to farm but the family's income was insufficient. Then Alejandra met Kiej de los Bosques and formed her own rural craft cooperative group of women hand-crafting jewelry. This change allowed the women to provide better nutrition, medical care, and education for their families. Life's gifts are many, so choose a gift for yourself, and give them to your friends to help Alejandra and her cooperative pass the gift of a sustainable livelihood to their children and their community.
