Gorgeous…

…is the first word that came to mind when I opened a package that arrived from Ecuador yesterday. I found out that women from the Kichwa community of Sani Isla were making this beautiful jewelry to help support their families and their community, and decided to reach out in the hopes of purchasing some of their work. I’m sure glad I did.

Read this story about my time in Sani Isla and what is happening in Ecuador’s Amazon region to learn more. If you would like to purchase jewelry or other crafts such as purses, please contact me.
