Lonely Planet review

Using native materials found in the Amazon, Maria Oiticica has created some lovely handcrafted jewelry inspired by indigenous art. Seeds, plant fibers and tree bark are just some of the ingredients of her bracelets, necklaces, earrings and sandals (there are even some striking handbags made from fish 'leather'), and her work helps support struggling local communities with craft-making traditions. It's located on the main floor of the Shopping Leblon mall.
