Acai Beads are the perfect beads for jewelry making. They're light weight and will go with just about everything. Our Acai Beads are harvest in small villages and small farmers throughout the Amazon in Brazil, where I come from. We make our beads 100%, from washing, husking, dyeing and polishing. Please note, our Acai Beads are 100% natural, no varnish or lacquer used on the for the shine. We use only natural wax and wood for polishing.

We dye our beads in house and can custom make a lot of colors. Just let us know!

✶ Keep in Mind:

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Please note that, all my items are photographed up close and personal, so that you can see their beautiful details. Some items may appear large than real size, so please check the measurements carefully to avoid any confusion.

Though, we work hard to photograph them as close to the real color, keep in mind that lightning, props and background may cause a difference on the color. Color will also vary from monitor to monitor.

✶ More Acai info:

* What's Acai?

The Acai (Ah-si-ee) beads are natural seeds and are the core (pit) of the Acai Berry fruit. The thin layer of pulp is used to make the Acai Juice used all over the world. ♥ We love our Acai Beads! They feel so earthy and the pattern and colors are just so beautiful. All seeds are hand drilled and the whole process is handmade from the begghing to the end. The beads you will be receiving are made with love and we hope you cherish them as much as we do! ♥ Beads are very unique and no two beads are the same. All beads will have a black line, which is natural in every single seed. Beads have been tumbled to give them a nice sheen, no vernish or lacquer have been used on them.

✶ Care:

Acai seeds feel very much like wooden beads. So, if you get the wet, dry with care. The best way to dry the beads is to place them over a little paper towel or cloth and let them stay there for a few hours. To give your jewelry a nice sheen, use a little bit of bees wax and spread throughout... I mean, very little! That stuff works great! You can use oils, just be awere that too much oil will make your beads look darker since wood tends to soak up oils. Note that color will change overtime if you get them wet often.

✶ More:

Euterpe oleracea or Acai (Ah-si-ee) grows throughout South America and primarily in Northern Brazil. It is a staple food to the local populations in Amazonas and Pará and in some areas is even more popular than milk. When we are traveling in Brazil, we will often go to the market and purchase a liter of fresh squeezed acai pulp for what is equivalent to a $5.00. The rest of the world has also now become acquainted with this wonderful super food. You can find many different drinks and supplements with just a stroll through your local grocery store. Google the word ACAI and you will be overwhelmed at all of the information available on this berry and all of the companies selling their acai products. Since this information is so readily available, we have decided to give you some information not normally found.

♥ The legend and myth of the Acai ♥
The legend states that many years ago in northern Brazil, there was an Indian tribe. The tribe’s chief, Itaki (i-tah-kee) set out to sacrifice all of the children in the tribe due to the fact that there was a scarcity of food. One of the children was his granddaughter and the daughter of Iaca (ya-sah) his daughter.

On the next full moon after the sacrifices had taken place, Iaca woke to the crying of a child. When she peered from her oca (tipi) she was startled to see it was her daughter standing next to a palm tree in the moonlight smiling at her. Iaca ran to her and clutched her in her arms. The next day Iaca’s body was found holding tight to the palm tree and gazing upat the berries with her dark eyes. The chief Itaki demanded that the berries be retrieved and made into a drink that was then named “Acai” after his late daughter Iaca. (Iaca is Acai spelled backwards). There were no more sacrifices made and the tribe survived on this precious fruit.

Happy creating!
