INDIO COLLECTION BY VIK JEWELRY
Vicky Diandre’s Indio Collection incorporates natural items, like bamboo, seeds and Capim Dourado, from her homeland of Brasil. Capim Dourado, “Golden Grass”, is a plant that grows only in the Tocantins region of Brasil. The grass shines like gold, and has been used to make bags and small objects crafted by artisans in the area. Only these artisans can actually purchase the grass and work it, and each of the them is limited to buying no more than 30 kilos per year. This is done to protect the material, as over-harvesting of the plant could hasten its extinction.

I prezzi sono sicuramente abbordabili e variano dai 22 dollari per l’anello ai 48 dollari per la collana. (via Inhabitat) [...]
