Acai Seed (pronounced ah-sigh-ee)

These tall trees are found throughout the swampy areas of the Amazonian region of Ecuador, with its berries being a popular source of food for the native people.  Fruit is gathered when ripe, its seeds separated, dried, dyed, sun-dried again and made into beautiful jewelry.  No two seeds ever look the same, which makes every piece unique!

Huayruro Seed (pronounced why-eur-o)

Huayruro’s beautiful red seeds are found this way in nature.  Seeds are grown in the Amazonian region of Ecuador on the Huayruro plant, within pods that are collected once they fall to the jungle floor. Sun-dried, no two seeds are alike, making each piece beautifully unique! Huayruro Seeds are said to bring good fortune and abundance to those who wear them or keep them in their homes.
-
Pambil Seed (pronounced pahm-beel)
-
Pambil seeds grow on one of the largest “canopy” palm trees found in the Amazonian region of Ecuador. The small fruit of the palm contains the seeds used in creating beautiful jewelry.  Seeds are responsibly harvested, dyed, and sun dried before being used for production. No two seeds look alike, making each piece uniquely beautiful!
-
Tagua Nut (pronounced tahg-wah)
-
Tagua is known as the “Ivory of South America” because of its beautiful ivory color, texture and unbreakable nature. Nuts are found within the fruit of the palm tree, each covered with a thin brown skin. When the ripened fruit falls to the ground, they are collected and dried for 4-6 months (depending on whether it is the rainy or dry season within Ecuador), then carved, dyed, polished and made into stunning designs. No two nuts ever look alike, making each piece beautifully unique.
