Product Description

NEW COLOR & LOWER PRICE!

Chocolate brown coconut shells accent this eye-catching necklace handmade from acai and pambil seeds. The smooth and lightweight quality of the seeds and shells make for a very bold yet comfortable necklace. 18 inches long. Crafted by Ecuadoran artists. 

Artist's Story:

Ecuador has a long history of creating jewelry out of rainforest seeds. However, without a lucrative market to sell their jewelry, many artisans have to forgo meals to feed their children. The fair trade artisans who make this jewelry no longer face this dilemma. They receive business training, workshops in design, and of course a fair wage and good working conditions. Their lives have been and continue to be transformed when you purchase their products. Trees are not harmed and the commercialization of these seeds helps to ensure the survival of the world's rainforests by providing an alternative income for its inhabitants in place of logging or selling their land to destructive industries. Through a manual, low energy process, seeds are transformed into beads, which have sculptural natural irregularities, both in color and form. Each piece is truly one of a kind.
