Inspired by the muted tones of the delightful treasures found in the sand, this set includes three different bracelets: white macrame with white lava rock; green macrame with white lava rock; and a multicolored, uniquely woven macrame designed bracelet. Wear individually or stack together!All of our macrame is made with enclosed thread (waxed polyester cord), authentic lava rock and glass beads. All materials are from Guatemala and may vary in shade and size. With adjustable strings, this adult bracelet will fit most wrists. An exciting feature that the lava rocks offer is due to the pores in the stones, they can absorb oils! Dab some of our essential oil into the stone and brew a natural spa aroma on your wrist for all-day relaxation.Our amazing artisan Sara Perez crafted each bracelet with detailed technique, so each one is durable and beautiful. When personal tragedy struck, Sara suddenly needed to stay home with her child while still being able to earn money. With Sara’s skill and the support of our Miko team, she created these beautiful bracelets and was able to get back on her feet. These bracelets were the project that inspired us to create the platform Miko Marketplace.
I enjoy living in the present with my children.
My name is Sara Pérez and I've worked through many challenge as a woman, a single mother, and as an artisan who provides products to Industrias Xela, which is a company that has a human face and has given me support. I started working in the purchasing area at Industrias Xela*, while there, I was told the very sad news that my son had been diagnosed with colon cancer. I knew that I needed to be close to him in order for me to best take care of him. In response to this emergency, the Larsen family helped me continue to work while home by making macramé bracelets and floral combs. This way I could take care of my son and still earn money. God bless those people. Because this family and company knew I needed extra support, they assisted in the construction of my house and furnished it for me.Continue reading Sara's story...
