These bracelets were handmade with LOVE in Guerrero and Puebla, Mexico by women artisans from the co-op Flor de Mexico, led by Araceli Flores.
The motto behind Flor de Mexico is ‘History Made by Women’—LOVE! The majority of the palm used in these bracelets is collected from communities nestled in the mountains near Atlixtac, Zapotitlan Tablas, Ahuacoutzingo and Copanatoyac. The beads are handcrafted and dyed over 3-5 days in Guerrero and then passed off to the artisans in Puebla who use a needle to weave together the bracelet.
Ever since my first visit to Mexico as a child, I gravitated to all the colors and traditional folkloric designs. With every trip I’ve taken as an adult, I’ve been able to deepen my connection and understanding of Mexican culture. I’ve discovered the diversity that makes each region so special.
Every Corazón bracelet collection tells a story of agricultural, familial, political, and religious strength inspired by Mexican culture. It’s an honor to introduce you to our special artisan partners.
We believe in preserving cultural craftsmanship to keep their stories alive. Jobs created help support families and children's education.
You're helping us show up and provide more economic opportunities to our partner artisans.

"What the world need more of now...LOVE!" - Chrissie
"Amen." - Mark Cuban
We went on a wild journey and appeared on Shark Tank Because nothing says love like dragging your 70 years old mom out of retirement to help with operations and finances, I brought her on the show too! ;-)
I believe LOVE is passion for what you do. Love Is Project is truly a labor of LOVE. Between my mother, Gladys, and myself, we singlehandedly run this organization full-time. We are the definition of a scrappy, big-hearted start-up always looking to meet the moment and jump in to help where we can. Powered by LOVE and a tribe of collaborators, mentors, friends, and a worldwide support system, Love Is Project exists. ♥
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your support!
