Cristobal's story

Cristobal is an artisan from Guatemala who specializes in handcrafted beaded jewelry. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of beads, gemstones, thread and buttons.


Cristobal has been selling through NOVICA since 2017. This is his story: "I'm Cristobal and I design and create beaded, crocheted and macramé bracelets, which I began learning to create when I was seven years old. Setting up a workshop was my biggest adventure because I didn't have any funding. However, many people trusted me and wanted to work with me. It's been a pleasure to teach them, so that they can have a secure income."


"Thank you very much for your great support and your noble heart. Your support makes it possible for craftsmen of the third world to have real opportunities, to be able to realize our dreams and develop our life projects. Thousands of thanks! God bless everyone."
