Our Lacina Earrings are made from Syngonanthus nitens flower, an all-natural, renewable resources. A Brazilian golden Plant with a long gilded golden stem. Its main characteristic is its natural brightness and golden color. A rare plant which has the appearance of spun gold and continues to shine after it is harvested. It is strong, durable and flexible enough to be woven into accessories. It is also very light in weight so that earrings that look like gold are virtually weightless. The conservation management by the Brazilian government (EMBRAPA) assures that it is a renewable resource. The Brazilian government prohibits export of the raw grass; only crafted products may be sold outside
Lacina means golden winged butterfly in Tupi, one of the most popular indigenous languages in Brazil. Tupi guaranis were one of the most numerous indigenous people in Brazil, before colonisation. They settled in the Amazon rainforest about 2,900 years ago.
