A very quiet and shy man from Oaxaca, Mexico, Bartolo sells his beadwork during the weekends, and works on construction sites during the week. He lives in Mexico City, where he has his art stand in a plaza in the center of the city. He has been working with beads for 10 years, and tries to come up with new pieces often.

His wife Rosalba and him are raising three girls, you can find all of them in the city blowing bubbles and running around while he sells. 
He hopes to be able to quit working on construction to dedicate himself full time to beading.
Bartolo is a gentle soul, eager to work and full of energy to grow his business.
