This 12" Treated Decorated Chile Piquin Ristra is made from very hot, small New Mexico grown chiles. These hand-tied pieces are individually designed and decorated with yucca, garlic, corn husks, and baby's breath. They are treated with a coloring that enchances their natural beauty and preserves them for many years. They have flat backs so that they lay flush against a wall. These creative pieces make unique Southwestern gifts for family, friends, and associates.
