Handmade Jewellery and Crafts

Renee and Mariana, a wonderful couple in Las Tolas, have their own craft workshop from which they make the most exquisite pieces of jewellery and crafts.

 

The materials for the crafts are all locally sourced from the cloud forests themselves and made from a variety of different seeds, including the tagua nut.

 

Craft production has allowed Renee and Mariana to move from destructive logging to an alternative income, which allows the protection of their precious natural environment and the farm where the seeds and products come from.

 

The products available to purchase are:

- Necklaces, bracelets, rings, hair slides

- Beautiful hand carved Christmas tree decorations

- Hand crafted signs and pictures on wood

- Accessories or packets of seeds/tagua ready for designing into your own jewellery.

 

We are happy to send you the prices of these items and they can be sent either individually or as a selection to sell in your own local community.  These are great to contribute to a local fundraiser, Spanish themed night or just as unusual, beautiful presents for your friends.  

Please contact Teresa at volunteerlastolas@gmail.com for more information.  Teresa will put you in contact with Mariana and Renee to discuss further and place your order.
