Sterling silver beaded bracelet, 'Gleaming Combination' (Guatemala)

Representing an effort to provide young girls with artisanal skills, the Jalapa Girl Jewelsmiths of Guatemala present this gleaming bracelet. Oval and rondelle beads of high-polish sterling silver achieve a winning combination as they circle the wrist, closing with a lobster claw clasp of fine silver. The fingerprint of the artisan that crafted the bracelet adorns a small square tag alongside the clasp.
