Guatemalan Hand-Beaded Belts: medium

We traveled up, up into the highlands of Guatemala and visited a family at the very end of the road. There the two daughters—young women—showed us their artistry. We admired their belts and modified their traditional design to fit our way of dressing. Adapting the skills and patterns used to weave elaborate huipiles, they apply their extraordinary sense of color to painting with beads. The result: these extraordinary beaded belts with motifs of birds and flowers. The beading is backed on fabric in traditional colors and patterns. From formal occasions to jeans, tied on the waist or the hips, these belts are surprisingly versatile and will add sparkle to your day.

Dimensions of medium size: 30" with 20" braided tassel ties, 2.5" wide
