This beautiful beaded purse is handmade by Embera artisans from Columbia – The Emberas are an indigenous group that inhabit eastern Panama and northwestern Colombia. For centuries their people lived semi-nomadic lives as hunter-gatherers and fishermen moving constantly through the most remote parts of the rainforest.
They are made with tiny colourful beads set in intricate designs and patterns. Each piece is truly unique.
Handcrafts are one of the main resources of survival for the Embera who are known for their beautiful beading skills and knowledge, passed from generations to generations.
PARROT ENERGY – Parrots teach us the power of magic. Their feathers are used in healing rituals to invoke the properties of color and light. Color and light therapy have been used by many native tribes to heal the sick or injured. For those with this totem the study of its colors will reveal a lot about yourself.
Parrots can be very vocal or very quiet depending upon the situation they are in. In humans this indicates an innate ability to know when to voice ones opinion and when to be silent. Lessons associated with discernment are always present in a parrot medicine person. The parrot is a feel good bird and is a great ally in healing depression. When the parrot flies into your life it is asking you to recapture the magic of living. It is time to enjoy your life and all it holds.
