Down-to-earth yet bold and beautiful, this handmade necklace from Honduras is a gorgeous finishing touch to your ensemble! Made by artisans using traditional, low-temperature, burnished pottery techniques to create these ethnic designs, resulting in stunning, subtle colors.
Located in the heart of Central America, Honduras has a very rich artisan tradition. Most of the indigenous and rural artisans are women, keepers of the pre-Colombian and colonial techniques, shapes, and secrets. In the hands of Lenca, Miskito, Tawahka, Garifuna, Pech, Tolupan, Maya, Chorti and Mestizo women, these traditions are experiencing a renaissance thanks to the support and design work of ACTA DE HONDURAS. Their artisans use beautiful pottery and recycled aluminum that they fashion into jewelry, ornaments, gifts and home decor. Lencan Pottery is one of the most known and impressive artistry of Honduras.
