These necklaces have pendants hand carved from tagua nuts and nylon cords that can be tied at the back. The pendants are approximately 1" by 1.25" and 0.2" thick (2.5 by 3.25 cm and 0.5 cm thick), and have a glazed ceramic bead attached on top. A necklace weighs approximately 4 to 10 grams.
Tagua nuts are harvested in South America from the tagua palm, also known as ivory palm or ivory-nut palm. This fair trade product helps reduce the demand sustaining the illegal ivory trade, and these handmade collectibles are environmentally friendly and meant to be treasured.
