Huayruro Seeds

I bought some huayruro seeds last week for jewelry making. These seeds (Ormosia coccinea) grow throughout South America and parts of Central America, and they are considered good luck. The bright orangey-red color with signature black spot reminds me of ladybugs!

I've made a couple things with them so far, a bracelet (using tagua seeds too) and some earrings (a pair to sell and a pair for me!)

They're a great shade of red! *Wonders if I've found an alternative to coral*
