Darina, a devoted mother of two, resides in the charming community of San Pablito in Puebla, Mexico.
From a tender age, Darina has immersed herself in the art of beading, a passion that resonates deeply with her Otomi heritage. In addition to her beadwork, she finds immense joy in crafting various traditional pieces that celebrate Mexico's rich cultural tapestry. This includes intricate embroidery depicting native animals, handcrafted amate lamps made from the very same vegetable paper employed in pre-Hispanic times, and even delving into the world of Mexican fashion.
However, it is in the realm of beaded jewelry that Darina truly shines. She continually seeks inspiration for her next masterpiece, driven by an unwavering passion for her craft.
Meeting the delightful Darina and her endearing children, who hold the center of her world, has been a truly inspirational experience.
