This beautiful necklace combines a skilfully hand carved Tagua component with a hand cut and polished brass bar. The pendant necklace 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. If you ever want to restore the original shine to the brass pieces we recommend you clean it with Brasso and a soft cloth.
Fair trade can be so stylish!
