These lovely, hand-crafted barrettes are based on old Peruvian history. The "Worry Dolls" characters are designed as miniatures of the traditionally-dressed indigenous people of the Andes mountains. Peruvian children believe that before you go to bed at night you tell one worry to each doll. After, the doll is placed under ones pillow and when awakening in the morning any worries are gone! These barrettes are decorated with worry dolls in true Andean fashion.
