Vicenta

We met a lovely woman named Vicenta at her home workshop on Saturday. She lives here in Antigua and makes worry dolls, sews fabric bags, and makes jewelry sometimes, too. I made a large purchase from her, including two sizes of bags and two sizes of worry dolls.

Here's a picture of Vicenta next to her handiwork, and a few of her in-process worry dolls!

I love your blog! When I was in Guatemala, worry dolls and the ceramic animal beads were some of my favorite take home treasures. It is nice to see the people who create these wonderful little works of art!
