Joyeria Semilla - Seed Jewelry
Colombia

MG-artisan_6Joyeria Semilla meaning Seed Jewelry is a small fair-trade workshop in the Andean town of Villa de Leyva, Colombia. Girasol Taborda, a local artisan and social entrepreneur, started the workshop in the mid-1990s.

Joyeria Semilla’s objective is three-folds; to create new jobs, revive Colombia's handicrafts sector and to motivate locals to better manage their natural resources. Working primarily with socially and economically disadvantaged youths, single mothers and people with disabilities in the area, almost all of the artisans begin without any previous training or work experience. The company offers free training in product design, technical training and marketing to new members. Joyeria Semilla has trained them in the craft of jewelry-making.

This handmade natural seed earring is made from the seeds of the amber tree. These and the various other seeds used for jewelry making (wairuru, china wairuru and the orkko wairuru) are considered essential ingredients for traditional medicines and magical practices in ancient Colombian lore.

Artisans at the fair trade organization Joyeria Semilla are known for creating jewelry from materials readily available in their environment including seeds, natural fibers and leaves. Joyeria Semilla’s objectives are to create new jobs, to revive Colombia's traditional handicrafts and to better manage their natural resources.
