Our family stopped in a few weeks ago while we were spending a week on the island. Such a neat shop and I love that it is empowering women. The beading work they do is incredible. My daughter and I had fun picking out several different items both for ourselves and for gifts as well.
A wonderful group of local women who banded together over 15 years ago to sell their beautiful hand crafted beaded jewelry in a collective instead of competing against one another hawking their art independently. If you’re visiting the island and need presents for your friends back home, you MUST stop by. They’ve got stunning necklaces, bracelets, chokers, earrings and belts. You’ll see the woman sitting at a large central table making ornate jewelry while you shop. Prices are very cheap (necklace + earing combos for $200-300 pesos... $10-15 USD). This sort of jewelry gets sold at hipster and suburban boutiques back in the US for $100 a pop.
