The workmanship and artistry are exceptional in this bracelet made with extremely tiny size 15 ‘micro’ beads. This traditional Huichol pattern uses silvery turquoise and accented with other shades. The body of the bracelet is 7 1/4″ (see sizing chart below). It is 1 1/2″ wide and is fastened with 4 balls and loops. You won’t be disappointed in this work of art! The wearer will get immense pleasure from seeing the pattern against the skin and its silky feel. Our bracelets are extremely durable and comfortable. Breakage is not a problem due to the exquisite work and tough stringing material used. The loops and balls fit perfectly.
This bracelet is made by the same group of Huichol Indian families that create all of the beaded art in our store. It is meticulously made using needles, not looms. As is all of the art, it is acquired adhering to fair trade principles. The artists are able to remain in their communities and are paid very fairly on a continuing basis. In addition, the beads and all other components are provided to them.

HOW TO FASTEN – 2 WAYS
Click on the pictures to magnify and scroll through them.
1st Way to Fasten (1st picture): Simply Put Ball Thru Loop.
2nd Way to Fasten (2nd and 3rd pictures): Put Ball Thru Triangle Next to Bracelet Body (see triangle in leftmost picture). Flip Loop Over Ball. This results in a double fastening.
Note: 2nd way of fastening makes the bracelet shorter by 1/4 inch, giving some size flexibility. Loops always fit the balls securely.
Measure wrist above the ‘bump’ with a cloth measuring tape or a string, then measure the length against a ruler.
Folks tend to wear these bracelets closer to the wrist, but if a roomier fit is desired another bracelet the next size up may be selected.
