Respect and preserve are two words that are at the core of Sophia Jane Jewelry. Salomon Aliser, founder of Sophia Jane, handmakes the jewelry from seeds collected in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. Natives of the region — who are paid a fair wage– sustainably harvest the seeds while respecting the natural growing seasons.
