Vilma Tagua Circular Necklace
This simple yet stylish necklace shows off the natural characteristics of the tagua nut and is a collaboration of skills by makers in Ecuador and Peru. With gold plated chain.
Approx chain length: 54cm Pendant size: 3cm x 3cm
A tagua nut, hand carved in Ecuador, is combined with simple brass forms that are hand cut by the women at the Hope Jewellery project in Peru. The final assembly of these pieces is then completed by the Just Trade UK team of makers in their Peckham studio.
Often known as vegetable ivory, tagua is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to animal ivory.
Comes packaged in a Just Trade gift bag and includes information about the makers behind the piece; the bags are handmade in Vietnam using scrap fabric and so the fabric design may vary.
