Seeds To Love is a non-profit organization that sells jewelry make of seeds and pits from fruits and vegetables. 

The bright, colorful and light weight jewelry is made from corn, melon, coffee beans, peach pits and even orange peels. 

Necklaces, earrings and bracelets are all handmade and the seeds are dyed to add the bright colors. Crafts such as  crocheting and macrame are used to construct the jewelry.

Nasly Duarte, owner and creator of the company, says she started the business because of her attraction to nature.

After watching a movie, which brought to light slave trade overseas, specifically in the jewelry business, she decided jewelry was the answer. She runs her business with the principles of sustainable, eco friendly, green movement and to teach entrepreneurship in a sustainable environment.  

Seeds to Love is working to build a shelter for women in 'at risk' situations.
