Hand-Casted 35mm Half-Moon Pendant with preserved Queen Anne flowers from our garden in Colombia, combined with Palo Santo accents on a 18" gold plated chain

Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “wood of the saints”, a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal.

The tradition of using Palo Santo goes back long before the Spanish arrived to Latin America. Indigenous shamans of the Andes already used palo santo in their rituals to cleanse their space, to ward off evil spirits and bring prosperity in people’s lives. Nowadays, besides of keeping away mosquitos, it’s still used for this purpose: to bring positivity in houses and businesses. And also as an aid in meditation practices and to relax the mind.

Belart, a Fair Trade certified company, created by Tulianna and Alejandra Garcés, is a socially conscious jewelry line that provides sustainable employment to internally displaced communities located in post-conflict regions in Colombia.

Their designs are inspired by a reverence for nature and a passionate emphasis on devising creative and artistic ways to present issues to the world that most need our attention.
