Natural fibers and shimmery crystal rhinestones are combined to create these clever modular earrings. Three components - a crystal stud, a woven disk and a drop-set hugger arc - can be mixed and matched depending on your mood or occasion. The disk is meticulously made from from Capim Dourado, or Golden Grass. True to its name, the fine grass 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.

 

.75" wide x .5" long

Handwoven Golden Grass disk and black crystal rhinestones

Nickel-free gold fill post and back

Handmade in Tocantins, 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.
