Legend says if you whisper your worries to these tiny talismans, they will help ease your mind. A new application of a traditional Latin American handicraft, these Worry Dolls are wearable. These dolls are hand made by female-owned artisan businesses in Panajachel, Guatemala, then fashioned into jewelry by Hechizo in Brooklyn, NY.
In addition to working directly with artisans, Hechizo donates 12% of proceeds from the sale of every Worry Doll necklace directly to Friendship Bridge, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit whose mission is to empower Guatemalan women to create a better future for themselves, their children and their communities through micro finance and education.
