Fine silver pendant necklace, 'Spiritual Inspiration' (Guatemala)

In an effort to become more economically empowered, the young women at Jalapa Girl Jewelsmiths from Guatemala work together to craft elegant jewelry. Using fine silver, the artisans craft a pendant in the shape of a cross with a shimmering finish, expressing their Christian roots. The pendant hangs on a length of red leather cord that closes at the back with a sterling silver clasp.
