Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Diana and I coordinate a small group of Guatemalan artisans who call themselves the Seed Bead Artisans of Santiago. In 1996, a home for the elderly opened here. Many older people were left without close family because of war, natural disasters or illnesses. In our senior citizen center, social belonging and nutrition are basic human rights. Because of this, the home opens up three days a week to older people in nearby communities. So far, we've been able to help 60 elders a day. Since its inception, this center was created with the vision of being sustainable. To achieve this, women formed a group to create beautiful items with colorful glass beads. It's a beautiful project because it allows the women to train in something they enjoy, earn money and help support their families.'
