Portuguese Lace Plants can be found in many regions of the world. The kind we use in our bio jewels is Davalia fejeensis. Originally from Fiji, and presumably brought to Brazil by the Portuguese colonizers. There are many different varieties of these ferns, and their leaves are usually very long and divided horizontally in small sections, giving this plant lots of unique beautiful details.
"Natural vibes and exquisite simplicity"
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).
