This beach bum has snow worries. Add a vacation vibe to your Christmas tree with this amusing rendition of an eggshell retablo ornament. Retablos, image boxes portraying scenes of faith and daily life, were brought to Peru from Spain. Tiny figurines are hand-molded from ceramic and carefully arranged inside a painted eggshell. Our fair trade partner Manos Amigas works with small workshops across Peru, helping them find new markets for their products and supporting health and education in maker communities.
