Tropic Options offers you the largest selection of MAYAN BEADWORK you will ever see and is hand-crafted by talented indigenous Mayan women in the highlands of Guatemala . Our line is very special, yet affordable. Products are woven entirely with Czech glass seedbeads and incorporate crystals, semi-precious stones and pearls from all over the world.
Since 2002, we have fostered entrepreneurial micro-enterprise development and proceeds from our sales have created economic opportunity for hundreds of native families while also creating jobs here in the United States. Our standards of practice are far beyond Fair Trade as we advance working capital at NO interest, unlike traditional microloan programs.

Delight your senses with fun and fabulous jewelry and accessories in rich and exciting textures and color combinations. Glass beads, crystals and semi-precious stone creations are entirely handmade by Mayan women of the Guatemalan highlands. Tropic Options is introducing many exclusive designs that you have never seen and will not find elsewhere. Treat yourself and your friends to one of these treasures today.
