Like a tiara for your wrist, this uniquely designed bracelet is carved by hand from tagua nut, the seed of a rainforest palm tree fruit. Jewelry made from tagua, also known as "vegetable ivory", saves the rainforest from the clear-cutting required for the cattle ranches and plantations that have destroyed so much of this precious resource.
The process of hand crafting jewelry from tagua nuts is a long and meticulous one. After harvesting the nuts, they're dried and carefully carved into various shapes. Then they're dyed with vegetables dyes and strung into necklaces, bracelets, or earrings.
The Tagua Tiara cuff is about 2" wide and easily stretches to fit any size wrist.
