Tagua Nut Penguin NecklaceRegular price £25.00
This penguin necklace is skillfully hand carved from a tagua nut. A nut is selected that is as close to the desired finished shape as possible, which is then formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface. This sustainable jewellery is handmade by Carlos in Sosote, Ecuador, and each piece is unique*.
Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.
Perfect for a Christmas gift or as a special treat for yourself.
Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal. If your tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull, it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth. Although tagua is a fairly hard wearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip. Never immerse your tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack.
