Pavo Real Necklace

$ 210.00

The beautiful Pavo Real necklace is handmade by the women of the La Mega cooperative in Ecuador. This piece is named after a peacock, but the design represents the sacred matizado pattern; a color-blending weave that represents a rainbow. The blended shades represent the way that work, family, and religion blend to create a balanced Saraguro life. The matizado is a prominent element of the traditional wedding necklace. The beads are soft and elegant and anyone wearing this necklace will feel like royalty. The beads are imported beads from the Czech Republic and joined together with nylon thread using a unique weaving technique. The necklace is 15.5 inches long and 5 inches wide with three clasping options providing a perfect for women of all sizes.

"Bead-weaving is satisfying and beautiful, and we know our art will help our children."  - Patricia Parra, President of La Mega, Ecuador
