Hello everybody! We have received many inquiries by email asking about the giveaway of beads jewelry supplies, but it wasn’t until yesterday that we have finally received our 1st participant!! It is very exciting
The art artistic name of this beautiful necklace is Mystic Jaguar, and it is designed by Allie Thornton who is an ecuadorian but she is currently residing in San Diego, CA, United States. What a coincidence, ah? I couldn’t find her in our records, therefore I believe she is not a current customer of our bead store. Wow, I am surprised we are meeting new interesting people, yeah!
Allie also mentioned her line is called Organic Jewelry by Allie. This is a brief explanation she mentioned about her piece of work:
Tagua handcarved pendant ” South American lion or Jaguar” handmade and organic died and painted by Wounaan Indians, Darien-Choco region, Panama.
The necklace is my creation and is made of : Black tagua beads and barrels from Ecuador; 14 Kilates gold bead and 14 kilates toggle clasp. Retail Price: $170″
In you are in California propably you can stop by to check her Retail Places:

Finally, I would like to thanks Allie (www.andeanamazontreasures.com) for her interest in participating and helping us to spread the word of ecofriendly beads such as tagua! These minor efforts will make a huge contribution in the preservation of our world!
