Mexican Zarape


Living in the Arizona desert allows me to go on many day trips.

On one of my recent trips, my family and I went down to Rocky Point, Mexico and camped out on one of the sandy beaches and took in the sights, sounds and flavors of Mexico.

While shopping I saw huge stacks of Mexican Zarape blankets which are created using bright, vivid colors and patterns.

So - I came back home and made this stained glass window panel using the colors of the Mexican Zarape blanket.

You may notice a small beaded charm hanging near the center of the piece. I added this little treasure in to represent the fringe that is added to the edges of the blankets.
