Zulma Arevalo

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – Canopy C

Zulma Arevalo is from Costa Rica, where, as a child, her brother taught her to make bracelets and anklets known as pulseras out of recycled wire and thread. This folk craft is popular throughout Central and South America, especially in areas frequented by tourists who enjoy taking home a piece of handmade jewelry. Since coming to Utah, Zulma has enjoyed making colorful pulseras using cotton thread.
