Tagua Palm Nut Slice Earrings

These chic earrings featuring a polished slice of tagua nut show off a blend of jungle essence and a range of natural and fun colors.  The nut of the tagua palm tree is both strong and has a silky off-white color.  These characteristics are the origin of its alternate name of vegetable ivory because it can sometimes be substituted for products made from the tusks of beleaguered elephants. 

These thin oblong tagua slice earrings come in black with a synthetic turquoise bead and weathered natural white with a polished açai palm seed bead.

These earrings are made by an expert artisan from Iquitos who has worked with the Center for Amazon Community Ecology for ten years.  The French hooks are made with non-allergenic material.

Please remember that these handmade crafts may vary from the photos shown.
