Alessandra Foletti designs a captivating station necklace in honor of women, sihua in the Lenca language. The necklace is crafted by hand with purple and maroon leather cords tied into a knot that can be pulled to adjust the length as desired. Featuring two shells and a cross crafted of pewter, the necklace is dotted with ceramic beads crafted by hand by women artisans in Honduras keen on preserving their artistic traditions. They are flanked by silver plated brass beads.

The ceramic beads are shaped by hand, therefore their contours may be slightly irregular.

Absolutely beautiful necklace. I could feel the love that went into it when I wore it. The packaging was even touching- loved the worry doll included. Will be buying more for gifts- thanks so much. Lori

"Made a nice gift."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this set for my wife as an ivory (14th) anniversary present. The armadillo motif has an inside meaning for us, as is usually the norm for gifts of this nature, so it was a hit on two levels. Actually on four levels because my wife also enjoys tea and loves candles. They are prominently displayed on the mantel in our main living area, which obviously implies that the set has an artistic value with quality craftsmanship.

"Ceramic Earrings"

These are really beautiful, but as soon as I wore them, one of them broke. Novica sent me a 2nd pair, but I experienced the same issue, so I gave up.
