All our eco-chic earrings are handmade from natural materials. The most used materials include uncolored seeds, beans, nuts, fruits and peels from the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. Some nuts and peels are colored with natural materials. We work together with indigenous communities to create these beautiful earrings.
Please be aware that making these earrings is very labor intensive and requires lots of patience and love. Some seeds grow far in the rainforest and it takes at least one day of traveling to find the trees where the seeds are growing. Searching for appropriate seeds takes a lot of time. As you can imagine the seeds grow without the holes. All seeds are hand drilled!
Before the jewelry making can start, weeks of labor is required. We try to give you an indication of the required labor for each piece of jewelry. Coloring, searing and drilling the seeds in not included in the mentioned labor time. It is impossible to calculate that time for each pair of earrings. Please be aware of the process and think about it. You can be a proud owner and supporter of the incredible work our artisans are making!
