Categories: Accessories, Bags, Earrings, Necklaces By Laís Fulgencio

Balangandã is a new shop we have the pleasure to Welcome into Blomming. But where does this name come from? Originaly, Balagandã is a kind of a pin decorated with several small charms  hanging on it where each charm is an amulet to protect the owner from evil eye. It was very used in the XIX Century in Brazil and the name is an onomatopoeia of the sound that those small hanging objects emitted when the owner was moving. It is known as a kind of creole jewels classified as a model of “resistance´s design”, emphasizing the black contribution in the Brazilian culture and the relationship between the creole jewels and their carriers.
