Rafael

Rafael lives in Ciudad Vieja, Guatemala. Inspired by nature and creativity, Rafael Morales creates beautiful handcrafted leaf earrings. Rafael works with Otto at his home workshop in Ciudad Vieja, where he has lived for the past 15 years. He has raised his daughter and two sons with a strong set of values and believes that work ethic is one of the most important things people can achieve. He has kept his own family safe by sharing his passion for honest work and has provided for them through his trade as a silver-smith. After working for years at one of the large jade manufacturers in Guatemala, Rafael has decided to collaborate with small partners, such as Ambos Designs in order to create a healthy work environment with ethical business practices. This incredibly talented artisan hopes to provide for his family in the future through his own unique designs, such as these gorgeous handmade leaf earrings.
