Purple Amethyst February's Birthstone:
Its colour is as unique as it is seductive. The amethyst is extravagance in violet. For many thousands of years, the most striking representative of the quartz family has been a jewel coveted by princes. In ancient times, amethyst was already being engraved and cut into sculptured forms, witness the ‘bust of Trajan’ which napoleon captured in berlin.
Terra Eclat emphasizes the butterflies’ natural beauty in jewelry, reminding you every day to protect one of nature’s most important pollinators
By using Non-Endangered butterflies in our jewelry, Terra Eclat aims to raise awareness of the issues affecting all habitiats, including butterfly habitats.
Butterflies are an integral part of our eco-system and are under threat due to habitat loss, air pollution and unpredictable seasonal change. They help with the pollination and seed dispersal of plants and crops. In addition, they are an essential part of the food chain for many species
The project is an alternative, sustainable income to rural communities, who in turn help to protect the butterfly’s habitat. Every little bit helps. None of the butterflies we use are on the CITES list of protected animals.
Helping People & Communities
Our production is the primary income for 15 families, in 3 countries helping them and their communities. 80% of our collection is hand-made by the most incredible artisans from Bali, Indonesia, India & Nepal.
Our workshops implement Fair trade practices; we provide local jobs, fair wages, and safe and progressive working conditions.
Yulita’sStory: In 2011, we opened our first workshop in Bali, while searching the local area for talent, we met a husband and wife silversmith team. Coming from a poverty stricken region in jobless Java to find work.
Their living conditions were so upsetting; all they had was a single cardboard box containing everything they owned in a small rundown dark room, where they ate, worked and slept with their young daughter.
We employed them and to date, they manage our entire Bali Production in a purpose built workshop and have a restaurant business on the side. Positive Growth.
