Natural seeds from the
Amazon and the Caribbean and some from Asia (cobadongas, tagua nuts, arito, ojo
de buey, mate, kukui nuts and others) add texture and bring an
exotic flavour to our creations. The first pieces of jewellery were
made from natural materials, such as seeds, bone, animal teeth,
shell, wood, and stone. In ancient times, adornment was often made for
people of high importance to show their status and, in many cases,
they were buried with it. All seeds are harvested without harming
the trees where they come from. All energy seeds store the sun’s
energy in them from which we create organic eco friendly

seeds is tagua nuts, which is hard and heavy, and has a cream color;
when polished, it is quite similar to true ivory (hence the name
vegetable ivory - used a lot before for buttons ). Tagua nuts are
sustainable and it comes from an exotic palm in remote, wild areas
in the Amazon. it symbolizes humanity and the essence of a person.
These seeds are very special, and when tinted with natural dyes in
bright colors are unique.
coconut palm is grown throughout the tropical world, and virtually
every part of the coconut palm has some human use.
The origins of this plant are the subject of controversy, with most
authorities claiming it is native to South Asia
(particularly the Ganges Delta), while others claim its origin is in
North Western South America.
Fossil records from New Zealand
indicate that small, coconut-like plants grew there as long as 15
million years ago. Even older fossils have been uncovered in India
and the oldest known so far in
Bangladesh. Regardless of its origin, the coconut has spread across
much of the tropics, probably aided in many cases by sea-faring
peoples. The fruit is light and buoyant and presumably spread
significant distances by marine currents.
pieces feature highly polished
coconut cut in various shapes and sizes, and we just love our
huge coconut cuffs, made of this
