Description

Beautiful and elegant eco-friendly earrings made of slim Tagua nut slices dyed a striking vivid berry pink and accented with turquoise stones. They are attached together and hang by a slim dark chocolate brown double hemp cord on to hand formed sterling silver ear hooks.

Vibrant colors and the delicate feather like look of the Tagua slices make these earrings very eye catching. The Tagua nuts slices 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.

These earrings make a quite a statement though they are actually very light weight and comfortable to wear.

Eco Natural materials info :

◘ Tagua Nut ◘

The Tagua Nut is also known as "vegetable ivory" and is indigenous to the rain forests of South America. The nut when it is dried resembles Ivory and can be carved into jewelry, buttons, and sculptural pieces. A sustainable and renewable resource, harvesting these nuts has little negative impact on the environment since it is the nut, and not the tree itself, that is used. Tagua is a 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 and prevents elephants from being killed for their ivory tusks. Because of its incredible likeness to animal ivory, tagua is also being used as an ivory and bone substitute, so similar in fact, that it is being used for many museum and historical reproductions of elephant ivory artifacts.


◘ Acai Seeds ◘

Sustainably harvested the Acai Palm Tree is not harmed in any way when harvesting the Acai berries. The actual berry is only about an inch in length and is similar in color to a blackberry. The berry contains a large seed the center. The actual seed is not only a beautiful natural material but is also an eco-friendly byproduct of the harvesting of the Acai fruit. Instead of simply discarding the seed it is repurposed into beautiful jewelry and provides additional economic resources for the native people of the rain forest.


◘ Huayruro seeds ◘

Sustainably harvested from the Huayruro plant that grows in the Amazon basin of the Peruvian rain forest. The bright colors and shiny surface are all part of the seeds natural appearance. A color combination of striking red and black give the seeds the look of a ladybug. Though the seed is not edible it has always been very desirable for its decorative quality and has long been used in Peruvian jewelry design. Huayruro seeds are very safe to wear as jewelry but are not edible, if chewed the seed can become toxic.
