Caribbean Queen for December is Local Artist Faustta Luna

Palm Beach — The Caribbean Queen boutique at the Palm Beach Plaza Mall is proud to introduce its Caribbean Queen for the month of December 2013, artist Faustta Luna, showing her handmade crafts in the store.

Born and raised in Mexico, the artist has been passionate about art, especially painting and handmade crafts, since she was a little girl. Her parents motivated her to follow her dream and continue to develop her innate artistic talents, which she inherited from her grandmother, an accomplished accessory designer.

Her bracelet art took off during a trip to Mexico. The abundance of arts and crafts found in that country combined with her own creativity triggered her own original fusion. Each bracelet that she now designs is unique and carries a special meaning, such as luck, peace, love, or abundance.

Aruba has given the artist the opportunity to show her talent, and the Island has also inspired her to continue creating new art. She is proud to share her passion, as well as her art and accessories, under her own label, Faustta, La Mexicana, at the Caribbean Queen, at the Palm Beach Plaza Mall, through the month of December 2013.

The Caribbean Queen Boutique earmarks a percentage of all sales to the repair of the world, Tikkun Olam, an age-old Kabalah concept. The funds collected are given quarterly to not-for-profit local organizations, an ongoing effort to do good and serve the community. All the foundations served with donations from the Caribbean Queen Boutique are dedicated to the promotion of art on the island and artisan education.
