Handmade Threads – “Tierra Necklace”


The Tierra (Earth) Necklace is handmade with traditional materials. It is made with textile on a blackstrap loom with a special technique with 100% cotton thread, using thread of different textures, a leather pompom and the stainless nickel medallion with its composition that represents a Mayan Nahual.



With this collection of pieces that have been handmade, we want to share with as many people as possible the Mayan Cosmovision and the Nahuales that make up the Mayan Calendar.

The Mayan Calendar has 260 days consisting of 20 Nahuales and 13 energies, each Nahual has a different meaning and energy. It is here where the Mayan Cosmovision teaches us that each person is born with a differently, and how we can take advantage of it in the best way.

The Nahuales are represented by a series of glyphs that, for a person who has no knowledge of this culture, cannot understand them. The objective of this collection is that with images that are familiar to most, we can share the benefits and challenges that each one of us has had since the day we were born, and likewise, we can identify with this beautiful Cosmovision through these innovative designs.

Each design is worked by hand by different groups of artisans, mostly women, with materials made by themselves, with different techniques, from the different regions of Guatemala.
