Eilisain aka Lisette in Gaelic

Welcome to my blog, where I document my process in making jewelry, muse on the influence of art and the joy of making beautiful objects.

Panamanian artisans

whoa, what a trip I came back from. I have so much to tell and show that I'll have to do it in phases.

First off, I am in awe of the artisans of Panama. They are extremely talented and hardworking and very underapreciated by the local Panamanians. however, tourists eat up their work! And it's no wonder why.

Above is a (bad) photo of woven jewelry, it's made from dyed palm leaves. They're so beautiful. I wanted to buy everything! but I held back.

more to come later... Pin It
