Beaded Balance Earrings
As a young artist and anthropology student, Altiplano’s designer Shari Zarin, got her start making beaded jewelry for sale and trade. Her interest in people, culture, and artistic expression lead her on a path of extensive travel, exploring diversity and the many threads that weave us together. With a shared sense of wanderlust, the husband and wife team, John von Wodtke and Shari Zarin are joined by many hands to bring you the Altiplano collection. They are based in southern Vermont and Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. The cornerstone of Altiplano has always been the strong relationships forged through time.
Altiplano is grateful for the opportunity to bring fair wage, long term employment to Guatemala for 30 years! In addition, their continued partnerships in the region support education, family nutrition, and the environment.
