These statement earrings are beautiful and fun to wear. They feature a slice of tagua from the Amazon on a lightweight bendable silver metal wire.
Tagua is often referred to as an ecological alternative to ivory. The nut comes from the Ivory-nut Palm Tree in areas throughout the Amazon rainforest. Once dried, the nut can be carved and is then colored with non-toxic dyes and hand polished.
Silver hoop measures 1.5" around.
Tagua pendant measures approximately 1.2" x 1" (size and shape of the tagua slice will vary due to its handmade nature).
ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This piece of tagua jewelry was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Colombia. There are now over 500 artisans working in the cooperatives. They are paid excellent wages and some have received micro-loans to start their own businesses. The 50-year Colombian civil war devastated the country and these fair trade ventures are helping families rebuild while also promoting ecological sustainability.
