Price: 62 USD In stock

THE AWAJÚN CHICHAO BEADED NECKLACE Wear this beautiful traditional beaded piece of eco jewelry designed and handmade with chichao, kumpia and tuju seeds, including some with huayruro* seed accents, by the Awajún artisans in the Peruvian Amazon. The large black shiny seeds of this bold beaded necklace make a statement with anything you wear.

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.
