Large eco-friendly earrings made of slices of Tagua nut dyed a beautiful ruby red and accented with dark brown wooden cylinders. They are attached together and hang by a slim dark chocolate brown double hemp cord with a silver plated bead. Hand forged sterling silver ear hooks give these earrings a modern tribal look.
Vibrant colors and large size make these earrings very eye catching. The Tagua nuts are from South America and are natural materials, no two are a like. Their organic shape, lines, veins and niches are what makes them completely unique.
This same style is available with Tagua slices in a smaller size as shown above in the third picture. I also carry similar styles in other colors as seen in the last photo.
Materials : tagua nut slices, wood, sterling silver, hemp
Color : ruby red, dark cacao brown
Size : approximately over 31/4" or 79 mm in length
★ The Tagua Nut is also known as “vegetable ivory” and is indigenous to the rain forests of South America. A sustainable and renewable resource that furthers important environmental and socioeconomic goals by stimulating the local economies and micro enterprises in South America, providing an alternative to rain forest destruction.
- I make my earring hooks by hand from sterling silver wire I obtain from a manufacturer the recycles silver back into raw form.
♥ Your Eco Tagua earrings will arrive beautifully wrapped in a gift box.
