Women paddlers are represented in Hawaiian petroglyphs. Equal opportunity paddling.

Tagua nuts are the seeds of the tagua palm tree, which grows under the rainforest canopy in Ecuador. Tagua is known as "vegetable ivory" and has many of the same qualities as elephant ivory. Before the advent of plastics, buttons were made from tagua nuts. Beautiful carvings called "netsuke" are made from tagua nuts.

Our necklaces are much more simple than netsuke. They're made from a single slice of the tagua nut which is polished and drilled, then printed with an image. The slices vary in size because this is a natural product. No two are exactly alike. They are approximately 1.75" in width and about 2" in height. The color is natural ivory. 

We attach a copper-colored jump ring to the slice and string a dark brown 30 inch adjustable cotton cord through that. 

It makes us happy to offer these necklaces, as they are sustainable rainforest products. If there is a market for tagua nuts, families will not need to clear the rainforest for agriculture.
