Shipibo Amazon Huayruro Seed Necklace

Quick Overview

This authentic, intricate, huayruro seed bead necklace was carefully and skillfully hand-made by the Shipibo-Conibo living in the Amazon rainforest creating a beautiful unique statement. The name of the seed comes from the name of the Huayruro plant , Ormosia sp., that grows in the Amazon rainforest. All female huayruro seeds were selected for this necklace. Female huayruro seeds are all red/orange and lack the black markings which the male seeds show. Due to its handmade nature, necklace ranges in length from 18.5 to 21 inches. Bead width is approximately 0.25 inches. There is a slight variation in bead color used for the loop and seed closure - some being orange and others being black. Handmade in Peru.

Product Origin:


Historically the huayruro seed was used in pre-Hispanic times in ritual ceremonies and as amulets. The seeds have been discovered in the archaeological remains of the Chachapoyas (Warriors of the Clouds) culture. Today their use is fairly widespread in Peru. The sees are said to bring good luck and deflect negative energies. They are also used against the evil eye in infants (to scare people with strong or negative energy) and as a shield against envy, for which it is recommended one always carry a seed. Other attributes given to the seed are that it represents the union of the couple and prosperity. One of the widespread uses is for making ornaments and jewelry for the purpose of protection and because of their unique beauty.
