Organic, eco-friendly materials
Lovingly handmade by an artisan in the Andes, this beaded necklace is made with organic acai nuts, sustainably harvested in the Amazon rainforests of South America. This necklace is very long at 60 inches (150 cm) which gives it a wide variety of ways to wear it.
Unlike many long pieces, this necklace has a beaded clasp that ensures you can get the fit that you want. With the many ways it can be worn, this is a must-have piece that you will find yourself reaching for again and again to give your outfit a splash of natural color.
The smaller nuts are a muted teal blue while the larger nuts are a natural dark brown – you will be able to see the charming striations and patterns of the acai nut. Also make sure you check out the matching earrings to complete the look.
Harvesting acai nuts for jewelry in the Amazon rainforest of South America helps to prevent clearing the rainforests for farming and mining purposes. The huge palm trees form part of the rainforest canopy, especially in the wetter regions. The nuts can be harvested from the palm trees for many years for a renewable and organic source of beautiful beads that contribute to the developing economy of several South American countries.
