Diosa del Sol is an ethically traded jewelry company that supports artisans in Guatemala in an effort to help share their art with the world. What makes us special is that our jewelry is handmade and one-of-a-kind. The beadwork is traditional Mayan methodology that has been passed down through generations and is considered a sacred art form. Our pieces evoke one’s divine beauty and creative self-expression with their unique colors and styles. Diosa del Sol means “Sun Goddess” in Spanish and that is what we hope our pieces make everyone feel - Goddess-like. From our more delicate Jade Collection to our bold Goddess Collection, we strive to connect everyone to a unique piece that makes them shine.
Michelle D met Ruth last May when she was selling the beaded necklaces in the Antigua marketplace. Her bright smile, contagious laugh and strong character caught Michelle's attention and the two formed a connection that sparked the idea for Diosa del Sol. Ruth and her family and friends hand-craft all of the beaded necklaces and bracelets we carry. Watch this video to learn more about Ruth and her life in Guatemala!
Rafael is the artisan behind Diosa del Sol's Jade Collection. During Michelle D's first visit to Guatemala she bought some of Rafael's rings as gifts for her friends. When her girl friends expressed their love of the rings and bracelets she decided to work further with Rafael to develop a new line of rings and bracelets that highlight Guatemala's unique white jade stone. Rafael is a gentle and welcoming soul and his passion for his work, his family and his country shines out of him. Watch this video to learn more about Rafael!
Mary is the designer and maker of the fabulous Diosa del Sol earring collection. Her unique designs and colour combinations caught our eyes right away. Mary, her husband and their new baby girl spend their days in the busy Antigua marketplace selling and also fabricating new pieces. We are excited to share more about her life and continue to work with her to develop more one-of-a-kind earrings for future collections!
