Amazon Traditional Beaded Necklace
THE AMAZON TRADITIONAL BEADED NECKLACE Wear this gorgeous eco jewelry piece to add elegance to any top, dress or outfit. This organic beaded necklace is a traditional Amazon design made by various indigenous rainforest communities. It is handmade with kumpia, tuju and/or wayampai seeds, with accent color at the bottom edge of yanpak, yusajiak or huayruro* seeds. This particular selection is handmade by the Awajún artisans in the Peruvian Amazon.
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.
