HOW IT'S MADE

Along hundreds of years, Wixarika history and culture has been transmitted from generation to generation through art. Originally, the materials used in Wiraika crafts were various things they found in their natural habitat like: stones, seeds, nuts, precious stones, shells and others.

Nowadays, after great cultural exchange and innovation, Wixarika craftsmen use crystal beads made in Czech Republic or in Japan. Thanks to these miniature grains of color, they are able to elaborate symmetric geometric figures incredibly detailed, making each art piece a true manifestation of the craftsman's inspiration and ability for every bead is placed one by one with the highest care and precision.
Between Wixarika techniques we can also find the thread drawing. This thread can be either synthetic or natural, giving a variety of textures and sensations at the stroke. Every thread is selected and placed one by one. Traditionally, what is used as adhesive is mainly a mix from beeswax and paraffin although technology now gives us the opportunity to use more resistant glues that give the pieces a longer life and better quality.
