"In Guatemala, we have more than 720 bird species, but few people seem to care about preserving their habitat. This is my way of showing some of our tropical birds and sharing my respect for nature," Jose Arriola says. Working in ceramic, he creates a set of six ornaments. A toucan, a scarlet macaw and a crested carpenter bird are joined by the almost-endangered blue ocellated turkey and two bright parrots. The ornaments arrive with a pouch of handloomed cotton.

We are very delighted with the whimsical birds which now hang on our Christmas tree. They are brightly colored and well detailed. Love the toucan!

I purchased star ornaments for my best friend for Christmas. She, her husband, and each of her children were able to pick a star for their own. They loved it!
