See How They Run

Bring the beloved children's rhyme to your Christmas tree with these charming and intricately handmade beaded ornaments. The set of three blind mice will add a unique touch to the tree, and they are sure to become a treasured family favorite. Handmade in Guatemala of Czech and Japanese glass beads.

Beading was introduced to Guatemala in the 1970s and now constitutes one of the major handcrafts in that country. Mayan women use sewing needles to quickly and carefully grab the beads and weave them into a design. As beads accrue, the sculpture emerges. Beaders must learn to weave or sculpt each new design separately, and to achieve the uniformity necessary they must memorize hundreds of steps for each figure. Very good beaders can produce up to two figurines in a day.

This item is available in limited quantities for the holiday season. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
