Guatemalan artisan Lorena Cofiño designs a majestic stretch anklet that circles the anklet with earthen jasper alongside natural green jade. Completed with coconut shell beads, the anklet is decorated with sterling silver charms that hold jade beads and depict a hamsa symbol. The hamsa takes the form of a hand, believed in Eastern cultures to bring protection.
