Our Tagua Tree of Life Necklaces have been so well loved that we couldn't resist adding this gorgeous color.
People love wearing Tree of Life jewelry because of its beauty and symbolism. This piece is handcrafted by women in a fair trade cooperative in Colombia and its simplicity speaks for itself. A piece of hand carved tagua with a cutout tree design sits on an adjustable, black leather cord.
Tagua is often referred to as an ecological alternative to ivory. The tagua 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.
Adjustable length allows it to be worn short or long.
Please note: Size and shape of tree pendant will vary (see second photo for examples). Measures approximately 1.5" long.
Makes a gorgeous set with our Tagua Tree of Life Earrings in Raspberry.
