Hand-coiled Capim Dourado, or Golden Grass, is accented with golden thread detail and dotted with a crystal center to create these simple, easy to wear stud earrings. True to its name, the natural fiber has a golden sheen that truly looks like a fine metal and is similarly rare, growing only in the remote northeastern Jalapão region of Tocatins, Brazil.

This is special because...

Since its discovery by runaway slaves from the northeastern state of Bahia more than a century ago, Golden Grass grass - now on the verge of extinction -  has been utilized to make all manner of utilitarian and ornamental goods. In recent years, to protect the species and the tiny communities whose livelihood depend on it, stringent regulations have been enacted, permitting only a very narrow, sustainable harvest season.
