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.

Sustainable harvested tagua nuts are sliced into discs and dyed rich colors and strung together to create this classic bracelet. The silver cylinder shaped beads used, are made from recycling old Colombian coins. Tagua is the seed of an endangered species of palm trees that grow in the tropical rain forests of South America. When ripe tagua seeds fall to the ground and are sun-dried for 4-8 weeks, they become extremely hard and are ready to be carved and dyed.

Handmade by artisans at the fair trade organization Joyeria Semilla, 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, revive Colombia's traditional handicrafts and to better manage their natural resources.

  • Measures 1” wide with variable diameter
