Parrot Anklet - Red
Step with intention.
Hand beaded anklet by Santa Isla.
Santa Isla makes jewelry in partnership with the Embera Chami of Colombia. The Embera believe that women bear the weight of the world on their shoulders. Each piece, called Okamas, are made to adorn life’s path towards harmony and nature.
When you wear Santa Isla you help the Embera culture to breathe and expand. Santa Isla works with a small group of Embera artisans, providing them a source of income and an opportunity to showcase their art to the world. Chami meaning "mountain" and Embera meaning "people," they are an indigenous ethnic group who practice the important aspect of the power of the spirits which they trust to regulate life, health, livelihood and nature.
