You'll be hard-pressed to find a more singularly exquisite piece of jewelry. The pendant is carved from a tagua nut, also known as "vegetable ivory" because its look and feel is so similar to elephant ivory. Tagua nuts come from tall palm trees in the Ecuadorian rainforests, an eco-friendly material that requires little energy to process and promotes forest growth.
Mayan Indian women pair the pendant with Czech fire-polished crystals and Japanese square beads.
The single strand seed bead necklace measures 17" and is completed with a macrame hoop and a beaded toggle clasp. Pendant drops down approximately 3". No two pieces are the same. Because the pendant is carved from a nut, it may contain natural markings and small cracks which do not affect the integrity of the piece.
