MG - Joyeria Semilla
Colombia

Joyeria Semilla’s mission is three-fold; to create new jobs, to revive this community’s quickly disappearing handicrafts sector, and to motivate locals to better manage their natural resources. The company accomplishes this goal by training artisans to make necklaces, bracelets and earrings using seeds from the plants and trees found in the area. While all materials used are renewable, Joyeria Semilla takes special care to purchase seeds from trees that don’t appear to have any commercial value. These trees are often cut down or mismanaged, and have some have even become endangered species because nobody values or harvests them. Since Joyeria Semilla began to buy seeds from these underappreciated plants, local villagers have begun to reassess their value, and no longer cut them down at random or use them for firewood.
