Working with an impressive array of glass beads in colors of yellow, turquoise, and gold, Guatemalan artisan Cristobal Ramirez designs this wrap bracelet. Within two lengths of nylon cord that wrap the wrist, the glass beads are carefully applied by hand for a distinguished look. Says the artisan, "To create these bracelets I draw inspiration from the beauties that Santiago Atitlan offers us." The bracelet closes with a pewter button.
