This fun statement making necklace is created using Tagua nuts, and will become your new favourite accessory.
Handmade by a women’s cooperative near Otavalo, Ecuador. The cooperative was formed to allow the women to stay close to home as they raise their children. The cooperative also gives the women an opportunity to work creatively as they provide a sustainable income to their families.
Tagua nuts grow naturally and sustainable in the Amazon rainforest. This kind of sustainable jungle harvesting provides local people with a sustainable income and helps prevent clear cutting the Amazon for forestry and farming purposes.
Lengths vary and is adjustable in most cases.
