A sleek silver oval graces this contemporary bracelet by Alejandra Torres, and diminutive sterling beads adorn each end. Centering a black macramé cord in the shape of our DNA, the pendant carries a message of unity and inclusion. 'Throughout our history, Mexico's people have faced adversity with unity,' the artisan says. 'As a symbol of this spirit, I depict a stylized bean. They are always present when the family gathers around the table at mealtime, as is the love we share. When someone arrives unexpectedly at mealtime, we say, 'Add some more water to the bean pot,' which means we never turn guests away. Our shared DNA represents our mutual humanity.' She names her design Nuuch, meaning 'unity' in the Maya language.
