This pendant is skillfully hand carved from a tagua nut*. A nut is selected that is as close to the desired finished shape as possible, which is then formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface. This ethical jewellery is handmade by Ronald in Sosote, Ecuador.

 

*Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.

 

Approx chain length 90cm

Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal.  If your tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth.  Although tagua is a fairly hardwearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip.  Never immerse your tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack.
