About

Organic Jewels can save the rainforest and create social change

My name is Allie Thornton, owner of Andean Amazon Treasures and designer of Organic Jewelry by Allie. My jewelry line is designed in San Diego, California. I handmade the first master designs and then, in Ecuador, we work with more artisans in the production of very limited edition collections.

Enjoy our shop, it has a collection for every one, "Truly Religious" is our line of rosaries and scapulars, inspired in our peregrination around CA Missions, "CA Vineyards" is inspired in CA Wine country where I live currently," Change my world" is the collection with positive messages for women empowerment, and RESCUE ME is my charity line inspired in all the dogs that transform our life with true love.

The main medium that inspire our designs is natural, we work with rainforest seeds and Tagua nuts also know as "vegetable ivory", harvested from native, endemic trees growing in the Amazon forest and Ecuador forest in South America. That way, with our job, we are helping in preserving natural rain-forests and preventing the poaching of elephants and rhinos a cause of its ivory.

Our mission is to create jewels with a good karma, to promote fashion sustainability, to provide green jobs and empowerment for women and orphan girls, because earning money, and educating ourselves made us, independent women and authors of our lives, and finally but most important, help to preserve the Amazon forest one design at a time.

Organic Jewelry by Allie have been worn on T.V. by anchors women and reality show artists: Robin Roberts (Good Morning America), Leslie Lopez (Good Morning San Diego), Pat Brown (ABC San Diego 10 News), Dagmar Midcap (NBC) , Heather Myers (XETV6) and Molly Hopkins (Double Divas, Reality Show).

In 2011 Allie's design "Mystic Jaguar" won the first jewelry international contest at Ecuadorian Hands. While 2014 was full with blessings: Allie's story is being featured at United Kingdom magazine "Make&Sell Jewelry" and we participated in our first RAW ARTISTS FASHION SHOW. In 2015 we were nominated to the semifinals for the RAWARD 2014, representing, San Diego, CA.

In 2016 the loyalty of our customers allow us to grow and start a wonderful charity work "Operation girl empowerment" provides barbies dolls and school supplies to orphan girls in Foundation "Santa Maria de la Esperanza" located in Olon Ecuador, the country where I was born, 10% of our profits are dedicated to that project.

Also, this 2016 , I started to design for charity and 40 percent of the sales of my new collection "YOU RESCUED ME" designed for dog lovers will provide dry food to my local rescue animal shelter " Animals Friends of the Valleys" serving many cities in Riverside, CA.

There is to much to do, and so little time, but every human life needs to build bridges with the community and leave a positive legacy and this is our mission in life and as business, team with local and international not profits, which love to do what we love and leave a positive trail with our designing and work.

As a woman , new immigrant and minority business owner, I am very thankful for all the blessings I found in America, the land where you can pursuit your inner dreams and dream big, because is not only about you, is about others. This country showed me that hard work,creativity and positive thinking can transform many lives, and save the forest, one seed and one design at a time.
