Joias Da Amazonia

Also known as Bio jewellery, the Joias Da Amazonia range differs from conventional jewellery because they are produced from elements discarded by nature (Seeds, bark, fibres and stones)

These amazing bracelets are handmade by artisans in the Amazon using natural acai seeds. The seeds are harvested, hand drilled, dyed and designed into these beautiful coloured bracelets.

The production and trade of these bracelets is an important source of income for the artisans and their families and offers the local and indigenous people an alternative to logging and agriculture.
