Meet the Artisan

Dolores and Dolores' Story of Hope Dolores and Dolores are giggly, determined, and incredibly loving cousins who both became widows at a very young age. Living in a small lakeside village in Guatemala where gender discrimination, poverty, and lack of job opportunities make it extremely difficult for women to earn enough income to become financially independent, they decided to join forces to raise their daughters together and give them better lives. Their love for beading and embroidery has become a source of sustainable income and security for their families. Every purchase of their beaded handbag charms, like this Peacock Handbag Charm, helps them feed their children and provide them with safe housing and education. But the best part of their jobs as Artisans is being able to work together from home and have more time to spend with their daughters.
