Coiled bracelet handcrafted from rainforest açai seeds, interspersed with brass beads. The seeds grom from palm trees in the lowlands and rainforests of South America. They are eco-friendly materials requiring little energy to process. Their sale promotes forest growth and aids indigenous artisans to better their lives.
"Our life has been difficult, but our children will have a better future, thanks to the people like you who buy our jewelry."
These are the words of Olga and Cesar who make this sensational necklace. Prior to working with the Andean Collection, the company behind this jewelry line, Olga sold grain at a local market and Cesar worked in a poncho workshop. They would often forgo meals so their children could eat.
Now they can afford nutritious food, have invested in their home workshop, and are able to provide an education for their children.
