"Elegance with a natural touch of uniqueness and good vibes"
The process of creating biojewels starts at the collection of the organic materials, acquired in the Brazilian Amazon rain-forest by local farmers. The goods are collected from trees and branches that have naturally fallen to the ground due to wind, rain, etc. After the collection, they preserve the natural beauty of each piece, by natural processes called desiccation and skelletization. After this first step, a second group of local Artisans handles the metallization and gold bathing processes.The whole process is certified by the IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of Environmental and Renewable Natural Resources).
