These elegant earrings feature a delicate silver wire lattice design, dangling huayruru beads, and lapis lazuli pendants. Huayruru beads are naturally two-tone black and deep orange seeds from a distinctive group of tropical trees in the bean family. Throughout the Amazon they considered to bring the bearer good luck, but it is important to remember that they are not edible. Different closely related huayruru species (Ormosia spp.) have small, medium or large size seeds.
These earrings are made by an expert artisan from Iquitos who has worked with the Center for Amazon Community Ecology for ten years. The French hooks are made with non-allergenic material.
