THE AWAJÚN BEA BEADED NECKLACE is a gorgeous eco jewelry piece that radiates around the neck - the 5th chakra. Wear his organic beaded necklace, a traditional design made by the Awajún artisans in the Peruvian Amazon. It is handmade with kumpia, wayampai, tuju seeds and accent color at the edge in red huayruro*, black chichao, grey yusajiak, tan or brown yanpak seeds.

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.
