January 18, 2014 - Beautifully made, whimsical, and exquisitely detailed. I love the fact that it is handmade and fairly purchased and supports local artisans, a win-win situation. My family adores gifts from this site.

November 25, 2013 - never come across these little dolls before. well made and lovely colours too. it's a stocking filler for my daughter at xmas and i'm sure she'll love it.

March 18, 2013 - I purchased this Pink Worry No More Doll because I have purchased many other dolls similiar to these that are available. By far, this is my favorite, so I purchased another one. I carry one in my purse for good luck. They are very colorful and enjoyable to sit and look at. The workmanship is beautifully done. The price is definately worth the product. I have a hard time putting them in the bag that is included, so I keep them laying on top of the bag that they come with. I can say if you are thinking about purchasing one or more of these precious little dolls and are undecided. Worry no more and purchase her. You won't be disappointed.

December 26, 2012 - The colors are vibrant and the details striking. This little doll is precious.

April 11, 2012 - These dolls are precious. I bought one for myself and one for my sister, and we just love them. If you purchase one or more, you wil not be disappointed.

Artisan: Doña Jerónima Juárez

Artisan Doña Jerónima Juárez

Doña Jerónima Juárez was born in the small village of San Pedro Las Huertas, near Antigua, Guatemala. She stopped attending school after the third grade in order to supplement her family's income by helping her mother sell vegetables in the marketplace.

Doña Jerónima's mother taught her to make worry dolls, a traditional craft in Guatemala. She recalls, "I was trying for 2 months to make the worry dolls; I made one but was not good enough then I undid the dolls and tried again and again and again lots of times."

Her perseverance paid off. Eleven years ago, she was able to found a small workshop, "Artesanias Multicolor," in the Colonial City of La Antigua Guatemala. She is able to employ fifteen artisans in the production of traditional and not-so-traditional handicrafts, including the "Worry Cats," a design she developed exclusively for the Greater Good Network.

With their livelihood no longer tied solely to the agricultural harvest, Doña Jerónima, her mother, and her three daughters continue to turn their traditional crafting skills towards the creation of new and unique designs.
