Noj 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 rythme 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.
Noj, named after the Mayan spirit, features a sapphire-encrusted tunic and a diamond on his forehead, and embodies peace and tranquility. Wear him diligently around your neck, and in beauty, he will symbolically bring your life harmony and spiritual serenity.
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.
