Tagua Seed Necklace - Natural
This wonderful Tagua necklace is both stylish and fair trade.
Handmade in Columbia, the "Rosa de Tagua" necklace is approx. 55cm (20") long, and features natural Tagua seeds that have been thinly sliced before being finished and threaded onto a leather cord.
The Tagua is not shaped before slicing, and therefore the slices are in the natural, irregular shape of the original seed. These seeds have not been dyed either, and so have the natural Cream / White inner colour of the Tagua seed with a Brown outer.
The necklace is very lightweight, and has a threaded bead fastening.
The discs used in this necklace are Tagua seeds that have been sliced and smoothed. Tagua is the hardened fruit of the Ivory-nut Palm Tree, which flourishes in the tropical forests from Paraguay to Panama, and is often used as a substitute for elephant ivory because of its properties and similarities.
