From Forest to Finger...
creating organic wood wedding rings that celebrate your commitment and the earth
Each piece of Naturaleza Organic Jewelry starts in the forest, where Marlon searches for the perfect organic materials to create unique wood rings.
Seeds and wood are collected from the forest floor in small quantities, leaving a minimal footprint.
Marlon combines organic elements with 100% recycled metals (sterling silver and gold) to create unique designs that celebrate nature.
Naturaleza Organic Jewelry is a family-run business that is committed to sustainable practices in every aspect of our work.
Marlon Obando Solano grew up exploring the tropical forests surrounding his home in rural San Lorenzo, Nicaragua. Alongside his 11 siblings, Marlon was raised on a small farm where he learned to use what was available to eat, work and play. While he was a student of archaeology he traveled throughout Central America and began experimenting with found natural materials to make jewelry and sculpture.
We are excited to begin a new phase of implementing our vision by reforesting farmland in Nicaragua with native species of trees.
When we met we dreamed of creating a life that would allow us to travel and spend time in Nicaragua and Kentucky with each of our families. We imagined being able to do a little of all of the things we love. We still work towards these goals every day, but we are so grateful for the customers who value our art and our principles, making it possible for us to pursue our dream. Our journey of building a sustainable family business built on integrity, social and environmental justice and meaningful relationships has only just begun. We appreciate your interest and your support.
