Awajún Baki Beaded Necklace Red
THE AWAJÚN BAKI BEADED NECKLACE Wear a beautiful traditional indigenous eco jewelry piece designed and handmade with huayruro*, kumpia, tuju and chichao seeds by the Awajún artisans in the Peruvian Amazon. The rich red color of this beaded necklace is energizing and captivating. The name Baki was made up from the word “Bakichik” in the Awajún language, which means “One”.
The huayruro* seed is a good luck seed. The red and black colors symbolize good fortune and abundance, as well as balance. The seeds are said to protect from negativity and bring happiness. In the Peruvian Amazon, newlyweds and newborns often receive huayruro seeds as gifts for a happy and prosperous life.
NOTE: Huayruro seeds (the red and black seeds in some of the jewelry) are known to be poisonous if ingested. We recommend that any jewelry with huayruro seeds be kept away from children. More on FAQ's section.
