I post all UK orders first class recorded delivery as standard.
International orders will be posted using the international tracked and signed for service, hence the additional cost. My gift boxes are made of recycled material, my packaging is reused from parcels that I have received, with the exception of the jiffy bags. I am gradually using them, once they have all gone I will be moving to more environmentally friendly packaging.
This is lovely lightweight necklace, making it ideal to wear during summer months. A teal blue tagua nut slice is the feature of this long pendant. It is presented with a plated silver spiral bead and is hung on 2mm teal waxed cotton cord. There is a cluster of grey and black glass and semi precious stone assortment combined with plated silver. The cord is knotted simply at the top enabling the length to be easily adjusted. Drop including pendant is 22.5 inches. The tagua slice measures 40mm by 18mm.
All measurements are approximate. Comes in a pretty organza bag.
I discovered tagua nuts some years ago they are light and very tactile. Tagua is known as vegetable ivory it is harvested from the rainforest floor in South AmerIca. The tagua is a seed from the tropical palm Phytelephas macrocarpa. The use of tagua promotes the preservation of trees in rainforests, giving people a sustainable, renewable, resource that gives economic stability and an alternative to rainforest destruction. Tagua has a strong likeness to animal ivory and is used as a substitute. In one year one tagua palm tree can produce as much ivory as an average female African elephant does in her lifetime.
The tagua nuts grow in club like bundles and are dried for a period of two to four months when they harden.
Tagua was a popular material before the invention of plastics. It was used to make buttons, dominoes, chess pieces and dice. In modern times tagua has fallen out of use but is becoming popular for those who seek sustainable and ethical materials.
