This heart ornament is created by spreading beeswax on the surface of a gold painted heart. Then beads are placed into the wax using a needle. The beads used on all the Huichol art here are much smaller than those usually used and we call the ‘micro beads’. This enables really detailed work! Silver plated beads embellish the ornament. It’s 2 1/4″ x 2 1/2″.
Here, the beads form an Eye of God, traditionally created for a person as a prayer for health, fortune and long life. It’s created using sticks and yarn and becomes a beautiful, multicolored work of art. So a beaded piece represents a yarn piece!
As with all our art, this ornament is completely handmade by a Huichol artist.
