Hechizo

Ease Your Worries

When we saw the worry doll necklaces from Hechizo, many of us were hit with childhood nostalgia. The Guatemalan tradition of sharing worries with a doll and tucking it under your pillow—like many of us did when we were little—is now grown up, and polished up.

Ease Your Worries

When we saw the worry doll necklaces from Hechizo, many of us were hit with childhood nostalgia. The Guatemalan tradition of sharing worries with a doll and tucking it under your pillow—like many of us did when we were little—is now grown up, and polished up.

Maker Hali Emminger (shown here with her mom, Denise) loved worry dolls as a kid, too, and forged a connection with Guatemala in college when she visited to help local women develop small businesses. When she couldn’t find an adult version of her beloved little dolls, Hali began crafting the necklaces to celebrate the custom in a dainty, colorful, and completely charming way. While she works on the metal components in Virginia, women in Guatemala hand-wrap each doll. Hali gives back beyond employment opportunities by donating to Friendship Bridge, a non-profit that assists these women with educational and entrepreneurship support. Don a sweet necklace to carry a feel-good totem throughout the day, and feel doubly good about helping to give back.
