Details

A man carries a hieroglyph on his back as he pauses to rest with his heavy load. He is known as Mam, or the "carrier of time." According to Maya legend, his role is to carry the weight of a full year upon his back, represented by the Haab glyph that he bears. Angel Ortiz works in Mexico's legendary sterling silver, mined in Taxco, to craft this original necklace. The pendant is worn on a long cord of black rubber.

"Beautiful Carrier of Time Pendant!"

I was drawn to Angel's Carrier of Time pendant when I saw it. He travels with all who are struggling and burdened that year so they are not alone. He also carries a glyph for life force or sun which adds more to the meaning of bringing support, life, and hope to others. It has a nice heft and will always carry special meaning for me. Angel, I hope you pursue a series featuring endangered animals. They need our help also and would benefit from your artistry and care to detail. Thank you for creating such a beautiful message with this pendant!

"Cool necklace "

I bought this for myself. This piece has already gotten a few complements. It is really a nice size and looks good on this guy. Not too big and not too small. I will be buying from Angel again!

"My Son LOVED this!"

What a handsome piece of jewelry! It has great weight, and feels nice around the neck. My son scooped it up and put it on. He loves it! Just wish it was on a chain. Thank you Angel. We will look for more of his works of art!
