Guatemalan Chachal Necklaces
Vintage Guatemalan chachal necklaces.
Individual necklaces all have their own story to tell. Coins from the necklaces most likely come from a time period of Guatemala's history when the government abandoned silver coins and started minting nickel copies. Also around this time white hearts and other glass beads, once used as currency, became worthless and made their way into chachales with the coins.
We have two necklaces for sale that Sally collected many years ago. One with white heart beads and the other with many coins. Both necklaces have doll and animal Milagro pendants.
