Enchanted by the bright colors and bold designs, I stopped into the Mujus kiosk in the 42nd Street Allée to check out their offerings. Inside I found flowing necklaces, chunky bracelets, and flashy earrings.
The best part is: all the jewelry is made out of seeds! The Huayruro seeds are a symbol of good luck in the Andean culture and grow on high trees in the Amazon forests. The owners of Mujus work with Peruvian artists to hand-craft the Huayruros into the beautiful jewelry seen in this kiosk.
The artists believe that the designs made out of these seeds bring the wearer good luck and fortune. Sounds like the perfect addition to my wardrobe. The necklaces vary in shape, size, and color and average around $49 and the colors are perfect for that typical black New York wardrobe.
If you see something you like, but prefer a different color, just ask! They have additional options that they can bring in at your request.
Hurry to the Holiday Shops in Bryant Park before they’re gone and check out these designs for a lucky new year!
