Our hand-beaded hummingbird ornament is made by skilled Maya artisans from the town of Santiago Atitlán. Santiago is a small indigenous village on the shores of breathtaking Lake Atitlán. Artisans from Santiago Atitlan are the only MayaWorks artisans that speak the indigenous language, Tzutujil. About 30 Tzutujil artisans hand-bead our fair trade Christmas ornaments. Making beaded holiday ornaments is a great source of work for Maya women. They can bead the fair trade Christmas ornaments from home which allows them to take care of children and elderly family members while earning a steady income.

Hummingbird Christmas Ornament

  • Brighten up your Christmas tree with this beaded hummingbird! Handmade by Maya artisans in Guatemala, this delicate ornament is made of beautiful glass beads from Czechoslovakia. An indigenous artisan hand beads each ornament individually, and the purchase of these ornaments helps to improve the lives of these artisans. Sales help them to provide food and basic necessities for their families, as well as strengthen their communities. Made of primarily blue, green, red, and yellow beads, this vibrant hummingbird would make a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys nature or appreciates fine hand beaded craftsmanship. The hummingbird is approximately 2 ½ inches tall, including the fringed tail, and also includes a 1 ½ inch beaded loop for easy hanging on your tree. This fair trade ornament is as delicate and colorful as it is unique!
