Maria Oiticica

Jewelry in Ipanema & Leblon

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 sandals and handbags made from fish 'leather.'

Maria Oiticica has a partnership with several indigenous tribes in the Amazon, who gather raw materials and even handcraft some of her pieces. The shop is located on the main floor of the Shopping Leblon mall.
