You don't have to travel all the way to Mexico, to discover some #huichol art work. Alcala's Boutique invites you to visit the shop and take a look at all of our pieces.
Cara Molitor from https://www.facebook.com/TheDollyFox is rocking a beaded huichol necklace The #huichols are an indigenous people who mostly live in the mountainous areas of northern Jalisco and parts of Nayarit in north central Mexico. The #huichol have a long history of beading, making the beads from clay, shells, corals, seeds and more and using them to make jewelry and to decorate bowls and other items. The modern #beadwork usually consists of masks and wood sculptures covered in small, brightly colored commercial beads fastened with wax and resin.
Join us in our mission to sustain the #huichol culture and in that process create a model for cultural preservation around the world.
