You might know that cinnamon is actually the bark from a tree that can grow up to 60 feet tall, but we bet you didn’t know how many practical uses it has!
Cinnamon sticks, also called quills, are the perfect compliments to sweet and salty dishes, and has positive health effects including aiding in blood sugar control and contains important minerals like iron and magnesium.
In medicine, doctors have noted that it can also help with digestive problems, diabetes, and even bronchitis. (you should still see your doctor if you have problems like these, we’re not advocating simply eating cinnamon as a cure-all for health issues!)
Our artisan partners in Indonesia have found use in this naturally renewing resource as well - in the form of beautiful jewelry.
The raw beauty of the organic curl of this bark has been a favorite statement material for two popular earring styles - our Lili Earrings and Maca Earrings. Paired alongside fast-growing pieces of real bamboo, these styles cast in resin have been longtime best sellers in our jewelry collection. Their neutral hues allow them to act as a true year-round transition piece to be paired with bold and subtle outfits alike.
And now that cinnamon is a obtainable and reasonably priced resource (it used to be more expensive than silver a couple thousand years ago), you can grab each pair of these handcrafted earrings for under $20. But we still think you’ll feel like a million bucks when you wear them.
