This beautiful seeded necklace will make you look like an indian princess. It is made of huairuru seeds natural red and black in a bold Cleopatra style design obtained by peyote stitching, the white seeds are angel tears and the brown tiny seeds are mustard seeds.
I did not make this necklace, I exchanged it with a Siona tribal woman, when visited the Amazonian forest last year. I gave her my work in nuts, and Roberta or "La jefa" gave me her Huairuru seeds necklace made in peyote stitching technique.
It will be a wonderful gift for somebody who loves eco friendly gifts with meaning , who appreciate handmade, unique work from tribes that may see their life style disappear with the globalization and oil exploitation of the forest.
It is what is happening now in the rainforest of my country Ecuador. Even the indian reservations in the middle of the jungle are not isolated any more, and during the night canoe trips watching caimans, I was able to see in the horizon the fire caused by the oil exploitation. The pipeline runs like a big anaconda around all the roads, cutting the sanctuary of the forest with metal and oil.
It is made of red /black seeds ,Huairuru
White seeds, Angel tears
And tiny brown seeds, mustard seeds. Worked in peyote stitch using clear nylon string. Everything up to the closure is made of seeds.
Huairuru red and black seed is believed to promote health, good luck and protection against negative energies. It grows in the peruvian and Ecuador Amazon rainforest. Let'spray huairuru, protects Siona indians against greed and colonization.
The girl in the picture is Roberta daughter, traveling with us to the other "country" is how she calls the civilization we know. This trip to Cuyabeno Lagoon or Laguna Grande was truly inspiring and wanted to share this story with you, lover of rainforests like me.
The piece made the transition to our urban and beach wear perfect as you can see in the lifestyle pictures with our model Rachel.
