Orange Peel Jewelry by Calamarie

Handcrafted and Eco-Friendly Necklaces, Earring, Bracelets & Chokers

Discarded orange peel makes the beautiful wearable art included in our Orange Peel Collection by Calamarie. The material is sourced from street juice vendors, and is thoroughly cleaned before undergoing a seven-day drying, shaping and dyeing process that results in beautiful roses, lotus flowers, and knots. These elements are then combined with hand-polished seeds such as bombona (vegetable ivory spheres), camajuro, acai & chirilla, as well as a sprinkling of freshwater pearls, to create elegant and lightweight necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

The clasps are made of cañamo, a strong natural fiber that is resistant to stretching or tearing. Pieces may be coated with a light layer of resin for a lovely shine and to help them remain water resistant, or left in their natural dried state, allowing them to retain their beautiful aroma (jewelry + perfume!).  The handcrafted nature of these pieces results in subtle variations from piece to piece, ensuring that each piece is truly a unique work of art.
