Wooden Stretch Bracelets, Belize
Made by Manela and her family in Belize.
We met Manela on a beach in March of 2019. She invited our family to visit their families home. Their home consists of a concrete room will several hammocks and an upstairs with a few beds. Another concrete floor with wood beams and a thatched room created a 'living room' and a kitchen with an open fire. This is where we found them preparing an iguana for supper with rice and iguana eggs. My family's first experience with eating iguana!
Manuela and her sister travel by bus to beaches, markets, and other hot spots to sell their jewelry and other products. We featured Manuela in our May 2019 Box of Blessings!
