All that glitters

Should I say I have organic and sustainable earrings? My earrings and my purse below are not made of gold. They are made of golden grass, a plant that has this unique and natural gold color.


Golden grass can be found only in in the Amazon region of Brazil, in a place called Jalapão, and is harvested only once a year. The artisans make beautiful earrings, handbags and other items.

This is my entry for the Project Yellow at Anna's blog!

Cris, adorei os brincos de capim dourado e a sua bolsa já tinha visto é super linda. Por causa da luminosidade, a foto não sai tão dourada como ela é!
