The huichol people and jewelry-making
Huichol art is one of the most traditional art forms in Mexican culture. The Huichol people are an Indigenous group living in the states of Jalisco, Durango and Zacatecas in Mexico.
The Huichol artwork is known for its colorful decoration of beading and sewing using symbols and designs which date back centuries. The Huichol people have a long history of beading; whether they be from clay, shells, seeds etc. and using them to make jewelry or decorations.
Peiote Jewelry has taken on the task to introduce this beautiful artform to our clients, we hope you like our designs which have been inspired by the Huichol people.
About the founder
I am Viry.
With a passion for my heritage and the ability to make jewelry, I founded peiote.
Peiote, to me, is the intersection between traditional jewelry-making and modern Peiote designs.
My passion for beading started almost 10 years ago. Ever since, I have been evolving in my designs and craftsmanship. Everything is made with attention to detail, which provides a modern twist to traditional Huichol jewelry.
You’ve likely gathered how passionate I am about this craft, and In addition to designing, creating and selling these pieces I also love to share this craft with those that are keen to learn.
