Experience Good Luck and Balance with Huayruro Seed Bracelets
Add a touch of Amazonian culture to your wardrobe with these beautiful bracelets made by women of the Quechua tribe in the Rio Napo area of Ecuador. The bracelets are crafted with brightly colored Huayruro seeds that are known for their ability to protect travelers and attract good fortune. The Huayruro macho (male) seeds are black and red, while the Huayruro hembra (female) seeds are all red. Wearing these bracelets is said to provide protection against the mal de ojo (evil eye).
Handmade and Fairtrade
The bracelets are made from seeds that have been wild harvested from the forest, along with some beads and a string. Each bracelet is handmade by skilled artisans and is fairtrade, ensuring that the women who make them receive a fair wage for their work.
Toxicity of Huayruro Seeds
The seeds of many, if not all, species in the genus Ormosia contain alkaloids and are toxic. However, the seeds used in these bracelets have been traditionally used in Amazonian crafts and jewelry for their protective properties and are considered safe for use in jewelry.
Habitat of Ormosia Amazonica
Ormosia Amazonica is an evergreen or briefly deciduous tree with a large, moderately dense, rounded crown. It can grow 25-35 meters tall and is native to the Amazon rainforest. The seedpods of this tree open while still on the tree, and the seeds often remain in the canopy for months until they are dislodged by wind or animals.
