More and more women are choosing handmade organic jewelry over mass-produced designs that add to pollution and waste. One of the most popular choices is seed jewelry. Many seeds are the perfect substitutes for plastic beads, and they have a more unique and worldly look. The most exotic seeds, like huayruros, come from places like Peru’s Amazon rainforest. Isn’t it interesting that after centuries of looking for the next big fashion trend, we are reverting back to the simple, beautiful designs of past civilizations? Women have worn seed necklaces, bracelets and earrings for centuries. This affordable jewelry has natural beauty, like this huayruro seed necklace. Talented Peruvian artisans craft these necklaces from simple materials to create unique accessories. Unlike the big brand names you see over and over in the department stores, each piece of Peruvian huayruro seed jewelry is a handmade treasure.
