Tagua Seed (Vegetable Ivory) Earrings from South America - BLACK TEAR DROP
Regular price $24.00 Sale price
Adorn yourself with treasures from ancient forests near and far!
This collection features vibrant sliced Tagua seeds also known as vegetable ivory, found in the swampy shadows of the tropical rainforest in South America.
The Tagua seeds are collected by women in rural communities, cleaned, polished and dyed. Over the decades the Tagua seeds have become an important natural resource helping to improve the standard of living in the most impoverished of rural communities - while also protecting the forest in which they grow...saving the planet one bead at a time.
Nickel free ear wire, low allergy surgical wire.
All earrings come beautifully presented on a 6 mm recycled cardboard card and popped in a cotton bag so they make amazing gifts!
Due to the organic nature of the beads each pair will vary slightly, expect them to be asymmetrical after all they are seeds and nature is random!
Note ALL beads are collected from fair trade partners who sustain-ably harvest the vegetable ivory - happy beads!
