Unique hand crocheted seed Jewelry Set. Handmade by artisans in South America.
The cord is made out of cotton. The necklace has a loop in one of the ends so you can loop the beads over allowing you to adjust the length from approximately 8 to 9 inches. All seeds used to make this necklace are eco-friendly and fair-trade and imported from South America.
The technique used to make this set is called crocheting. The beads are Amazonian seeds found in the Colombian rainforest. The Red seeds when ripe, fall to the ground and are gathered and dried for up to four weeks. The indigenous people of South America use PLATINO ROJO (NAME OF THE SEED) to represent prosperity. In china these seeds represent romance and love. As you look close you can see a red heart inside of another.
Matching earrings come with sterling silver hooks at no additional cost. Earrings length: Approximately 1.75 inches
