A single whole Tagua seed hangs from several cotton strands that are clustered together at the back. An uncommon, playful and colorful design that goes well with any outfit. An acai seed button for closure finishes the back. This necklace is sustainable, organic, vegan and biodegradable. This tagua necklace is fair trade and ethically handmade in Colombia, Muichic Natural Jewelry is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation.
When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut and shaped into beautiful beads that become Muichic’s natural jewelry.
