In Peru, huayruro seeds are an important cultural symbol. If you walk into any Peruvian market, you will see Huayruro Jewelry, keychains, and decorations. All are meant to attract good fortune and ward off negative energies. The seeds have been used as good luck charms for centuries. You may see a cab driver wearing a simple huayruro bracelet for protection on the road, or a woman wearing an intricate Huayruro Necklace as not only a special good luck charm, but also a fashion statement. Many Peruvian artisans are creating new Huayruro designs everyday, mixing a cultural tradition with modern style. This Huayruro Pendant is a unique accessory and gift idea.
