What about fish scales for jewelry?

HI!. Im Maru... I'm very exited to share with you some short lines of what's ARMARIO DE MARU all about.
I was raised in Panama, a very small latin country in the middle of the Americas. There is a large heritage from cultures over the world and local indigonous people that mixes all together to create a variety of color and folks.
There is also a national gown called the "POLLERA" a very exhuberant dress made of many layers of color all handmade, and this gown has a special accesory used by the ladies in her heads called "TEMBLEQUE" which now days, after almost 200 years of existence, they are made of crystals and pearls... but sometime in the begin it was made of fish scales due to the lack of other materials.
This is a local folk craft that was almost getting lost, but about 10 years ago, I learned the basic technique and now, I had improve it and apply it to many other clothing and lifestyle accesories, begininig with jewelry for her and also for him.
It has being an amazing journey for my family and I, to raise a store with such a SINGULAR natural material.
When you buy one of our pieces, it is almost 90% HANDMADE by humble ARTISIANS that are working together with me, to recover this beutilful art of fish scale crafting, wich is also linked to the prosperity of the one who use it, because the material comes from REAL FISH SCALES with happens to be an animal that really calls FORTUNE.

PICK YOURS AND ENJOY!
