Our Corazon (Meaning heart in Spanish) bracelets come to you from the workshop of Edgar Ortega and his family in Oaxaca, Mexico. Each meticulously hand-carved, hand-painted wooden bracelet fuses Zapateco and Oaxacan design traditions for something totally unique and full of LOVE.
Every Corazon purchase also includes a special surprise: a hand-made milagros enclosed in a gift pouch. The milagros or sagrado corazon (sacred heart) is amongst the most representative motifs of Mexico that extends well beyond its Catholic roots and has become a cherished part of folk art.
