B'atz Worry Doll
When I was a child, as children do, I worried. Minute details scurried in my mind, and relentless worries ensued.
In today's rapid world, our daily rythm brings an influx of little worries to deal with; what better way to exorcise these worries than by adding a beautiful talisman to your everyday ritual?
In Guatemala, Worry Dolls are a cultural tradition that help people sleep peacefully. Legend has it that when worrying keeps one awake, simply whisper your worries to your dolls and they will whisk them away!
Enchanted by the idea of these sweet tiny objects, I have created worry dolls to manage and keep your distress away.
B'atz, named after the Mayan spirit of life, destiny and infinity, features a meditative doll holding a tiny alexandrite stone. Natural alexandrites are one of the rarest and most coveted coloured gemstones in the world. They contain properties indicating inspiration, and willpower. B'atz embodies manifestation and holds the precious, glowing duo-coloured alexandrite stone to help you manifest your destiny. Wear him diligently around your neck, and in beauty, he will symbolically bring inspiration and the willpower to take risks towards your ideal future life.
5% of all Worry Doll proceeds will be donated to Mayan Families, a nonprofit organization aimed at providing education, nutrition, shelter and medical care to those living in extreme poverty in rural Guatemala.
