Green and Blue Tagua Stick Necklace

4 items left


Sustainably harvested tagua nuts are sliced into sticks and dyed rich shades of green and blue, then strung together to create this colorful necklace, sure to brighten up any outfit. When ripe tagua seeds fall to the ground and are sun-dried for 4-8 weeks, they become extremely hard and are ready to be carved and dyed.

Tagua is referred to as "botanical ivory" due to its resemblance to elephant ivory and ability to be carved in the same manner. Crafting tagua into jewelry not only provides income to artisans at Piel Acida in Colombia, it also provides incentives to protect and preserve the rainforests.
