"Ring of my Dreams"

My ring came in a light green color which I love better than the paler one in the picture. It is well made and perfectly polished. The stone seems to radiate good energy.

We got these for our young friend with whom we re-homed our gorgeous black cat who could not get along with our other cats. She (and the cat) love them and immediately packed them to take on her European Christmas trip.

"Nice earrings"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Loved the dark green jade earrings with shiny silver caps. It s simple, practical and can be worn with dresses or jeans. I liked that the almost black green color jade makes it neutral enough to wear with any color clothes. Easy on ears too for long time wear.

Working with Disabilities

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Ruben and Gilda's parents taught them the value of hard work and that art is an expression of culture. Many of their designs include jade, which was highly valued by ancient civilizations in the area and used as ornaments, tools, and burial artifacts. Their artwork is often a reflection of Guatemalan culture and they used techniques passed down over generations.
