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 for the next 60 days. 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.
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. 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 durante los próximos 60 días. 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.
Folks, this is a fun necklace for me. A young basket weaver was wearing it when I was buying baskets. She approached me and asked if I want to buy her necklace. I asked about it and here's the story.
She said the silver points were real silver. She made it herself and it was very valuable. At that point the two girls with her started giggling and hiding their mouth with their hand. That is a sure sign you are hearing a tall tale.
She was so sincere and convincing I figured why not. Folks say I will buy anything and maybe they are right. Well, I did a bit of investigating with my artisan buddies and they said the kids pound nickels into those points.
For me that makes the necklace more interesting than silver could ever make it.
It measures about 9" hanging. Stretched out it is 18" long.
Shipping is included within the USA.
