This one-of-a-kind pendant combines a distinctive piece of tagua with a freeform precious metal clay drop in fine silver. The unique design in the tagua is created by remnants of the outer bark and allowing some of the natural ivory colour of the nut to show through the natural indigo blue dye. The pendant, named in honour of the village in Ecuador where the tagua is sourced, is accented with açai seed beads. You can adjust the length of this necklace from approximately 20″ to 34″, simply by moving the sterling silver slide beads on the satin cord. 

My designs feature tagua, the seed of a tropical palm tree, sustainably sourced in South America. Tagua is known as ‘vegetable ivory’ because when peeled and polished is is creamy white and smooth, and has been used since the early 20th century as a substitute for elephant ivory. The seed is carved, immersed in natural dyes to create the beautiful vivid colours, and finally polished in a tumbler to bring out the softness and shine. All my handmade tagua jewelry is natural and one-of-a-kind, and yours may have slight colour and texture variations from the pictured piece.
