GIVEAWAY: Andean Collection Acai Necklace



The Acai Giveaway Necklace


Acai Wrap Bracelet

Pambil Braclet

I'm so excited about bringing all of you such an Eco-fabulous green giveaway. The Andean collection, created by Amanda Judge, has the most beautiful and socially conscious jewelry. Before I tell you more about the giveaway, you will love Amanda's story.
The Story:

While researching rural women’s survival strategies in the face of extreme poverty for her master thesis in Ecuador, Amanda discovered the amazing natural materials that were used in native jewelry making. She wanted to help the community make long lasting living improvements by finding a market for jewelry made out of the natural seeds. Amanda extended her stay to start The Andean Collection. She found and trained artisans who wanted a better life for themselves and their families. Artisans handcraft their designs from "natural seeds that have been sustainably harvested from the rainforests and lowlands of South America. The commercialization of these seeds helps to ensure the survival of the world’s rainforests by providing an alternative income for its inhabitants rather than logging or selling their land to destructive industries. Through a very manual process, seeds are transformed into beads with gorgeous natural irregularities, both in color and form, which truly makes each piece one of a kind." The artisans are paid fair wages and share in the profits of the company as partial owners of The Andean Collection. Check out their blog to learn more.
I love their natural materials in contrast to the synthetic beads you find everywhere. The Açaí seed is a small, round, blackish-purple fruit that grows in dense clusters. Many of you know it as the popular Acai drink. We consume a lot of Acai juice in my family. It's a powerful antioxidant that tastes good too. Some of their Acai seeds are hand-dyed or left their natural color. They are very unique and eye catching.

The Andean Collection is graciously giving away an Acai necklace handmade by olga lucia moran to one of Mom's Best Bets' marvelous readers!. This cascade of acai seeds is hand dyed with vibrant colors- perfect for day or evening wear (valued at $55.00).
