Hand carved and polished from the tagua seed by local women artisans in Columbia. Lovely with matching necklace and bracelet.
Tagua, also known as vegetable ivory, is the seed found within the pod of an Ivory Nut Palm. The collection of tagua is a sustainable practice and helps to provide incentive to local forest inhabitants to keep the rainforest intact.
