Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets until the crisis is over. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.

Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas hasta que termine la crisis. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
This necklace measures 20.5" end to end. The angle of the dangle is 10".
Folks, the first time I saw one of these necklaces was when I was buying baskets from several Wounaan basket weavers. I complimented the young lady on the necklace and she asked if I wanted to buy it. We agreed on a price after listening to her story about the silver she used to make it. Her girlfriends were giggling through the whole process which is a sure sign someone is lying. I later heard these necklaces are made by pounding nickels into the shapes they want.
It is the simplicity that appeals to me. The other thing is they are hard to find. They are made for use, not sale. But I bought a small bag full in the 1990's and promptly forgot about them. In my recent move to South Carolina they turned up. So here's your chance. I have about a dozen or so and will list them all close to each other so you can check them out.
When they are gone, they are gone.
