This lovely 3-strand necklace is fashioned of rainforest-friendly Tagua nuts, carnelian rounds, rich brown spider agate long barrel beads, which I have used almost like focals, and lots of copper beads and chain.
I have fallen in love with Tagua nuts! They are a renewable resource that is helping to save the rainforests because the natives can earn a better income by SAVING the trees than by cutting them down. (The name Tagua is pronounced "tah-gwa".) The nuts are also called “vegetable ivory”. They are the seeds of the nuts of the ivory palm tree in South America. Harvesting the nuts does not damage the trees because the nuts fall to the ground and are harvested from there. This particular type of Tagua nut is difficult to find but it is my favorite to work with because they are light but very pretty and they have an "earthy" feel to them when you wear them.
To see the real beauty of this necklace, please take a moment and look at it with the "Larger Views" function at the bottom of the large photo. You will be able to see the spider veining in the agate stones and the lovely brown veins in the Tagua nuts.
This is a long necklace. The longest of the 3 strands is 31 inches. The clasp is made of copper and is connected to an interesting and pretty copper one-to-three connector.
A TISA maker’s mark tag is included on all my women’s necklaces and bracelets.
Your necklace will arrive carefully and safely packaged and in a lovely gift box, complete with gold ribbon, ready for gift-giving.
