This unique necklace features beautifully hand carved Tagua components, complimented by hand cut and polished brass bars. The stunning piece is the result of a truly international collaboration between artisans in fair trade workshops in Ecuador and Peru.
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.
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 it is a fairly hard wearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip.
Brass is likely to tarnish over time. If you want to restore the original shine to your jewellery we recommend you clean it with Brasso and a soft cloth.
Double the beauty!
