Worry Doll Earrings

Spice up your outfit with these sweet little worry dolls. Each pair is unique. No two are the same. Wear them by day, and place them under your pillow at night. According to traditional Mayan legend, if you tell your worries to a worry doll before going to bed, then place it under your pillow, by morning the doll will have gifted you with wisdom to eliminate your worries.

Our worry dolls are made completely by hand by Lilian and her employees in San Antonio Aguas Calientes, Guatemala. They start with Cibaque fiber, grown and produced on the shores of Lake Atitlán, and form this fiber into the base of the doll. With adept hands, and a little magic, they wind string and repurposed leftover bandana cloth to create Sam & Nala Worry Dolls.

These beaded earrings were designed and hand beaded by a group of 30 women who reside in towns and villages within the Solol√° Department of Guatemala. These women work from their homes due to their remote location in the hills and distance to the main town. Each woman crafts two pairs of hand-strung earrings per day.
