These earrings are skillfully hand carved from a tagua nut*. The nut is formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface, the colour is achieved with textile dyes. This ethical jewellery is handmade in Ecuador by Magdalena and Albert, who earn a fair wage and have regular work as a result of their collaboration with Just Trade.
Material: Tagua with sterling silver posts.
*Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.
Size: Approx 1cm
Care: Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal. If your tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth. Although tagua is a fairly hardwearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip. Never immerse your tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack.
