By Rosario Leiva of Guatemala, this pendant necklace brings a love for recycling wherever it goes. Rosario works with recycled CDs, which she breaks down to create this purple and blue diamond-shaped pendant with a hole in the middle. Cotton cord and polyester ribbon encircle the neck. Says the artisan, "For me, art is fascinating; with it I can transmit millions of emotions in every form, color, and texture. I love being able to create new things, combining with closed eyes, and seeing the final result is fascinating."
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Rosario is a single mother with one young daughter whom she loves with all her heart. She works hard every day to provide a better life for her little girl.
Rosario has been able to improve her way of living and she relies on her dependable income from NOVICA.
Rosario's mother recently passed away and she is suffering with a sense of severe sadness.
