Tagua Sun Necklace, Ecuador

This stunning necklace is handcrafted by talented artisans in a fair trade workshop in Ecuador.  It is made of finely polished, rose colored tagua, accented by a piece of coconut shell, inlayed with silver and red coral.  Perfect as a statement piece for spring and summer outfits!

Tagua is a nut that comes from the Amazonian rainforest and it is considered an ecological alternative to ivory.  The work it takes to make it into jewelry is extraordinary - it is sun dried, polished, carved, sanded and dyed before the necklace is even put together.  This is truly a work of art!

Measures approximately 12" long and the pendant is 2" around.
