Using her work to contribute to charity organizations around the world, Guatemalan artisan Lorena Cofiño designs an impressive stretch anklet. Colorful beads of agate circle the ankle, accompanied by earthen jasper and coconut shell beads. Sterling silver beads that resemble eyes complete this accessory. Says the artisan, "The eye represents the Eye of God, who sees everything and is always present in the things we do from day to day."
