Meet Rosalía and Omar: A Beading Journey of Love and Tradition
For the past decade, Rosalía and Omar have shared not only a loving marriage but also a passionate journey in the world of beading. Both hailing from the Sierra de Jalisco, specifically from the community of Nueva Colonia in the municipality of Santa Catarina, their artistry was instilled at a young age by their parents, a skill intended to support their family nestled in the tranquil Sierra.
For Rosalía and Omar, crafting art is not just an expression; it's a profound offering to their traditions, their sacred ceremonies, and a source of immense pride and satisfaction.
Omar, with a penchant for home decor, and Rosalía, focusing more on jewelry, are versatile artisans who embrace both facets of beadwork. Their choice depends on the project at hand, with a shared love for both forms of the art. Alongside their artistic endeavors, they engage in fieldwork every time they return to Santa Catarina. Currently, they straddle life between the Sierra and Mexico City.
Given the choice, they wholeheartedly prefer life in the Sierra. It offers tranquility, lush vegetation, from babbling springs to towering mountains, and pristine beaches. What resonates most with them is tilling the soil and the profound sense of serenity that permeates their life there.
Rosalía and Omar's journey is a testament to love, tradition, and the calming beauty of the Sierra. At Mother Sierra, we are delighted to introduce you to this talented couple whose work embodies their deep connection to their culture, traditions, and their shared artistic passion. Each piece they create echoes their heritage, reflects the serenity of their environment, and is a testament to their love for family and tradition.
