The Art of Organic Jewelry

The Ryterski family visited artisan Javier Pincay and his lovely family in the coastal town of Sitio Nuevo, Ecuador. Together they ventured into the tropical forests of Ecuador to find the elusive Tagua palm tree which produces distinct seeds which are used to create organic jewelry.

We document the journey from start to finish and provide you with an up-close view of how organic jewelry is made and the unique talent that is required to produce the completed design.

Enjoy the adventure!
