Your customers will love the bold, standout style of this unique beaded necklace. The reddish brown beads dangle from a hand woven (macramé style) cord. The convenient clasp allows the customer to place the beads at the length most appropriate to her necklace. The necklace can be worn close to the neck in more of a choker style, or looser and lower.
The beads in this necklace are lightly died with organic vegetable dye, and then highly polished. The organic nature of the beads shine through the dye, each bead is unique with the swirls and striations of the original natural tagua. Tagua is a sustainable nut that grows in the rainforests of Ecuador. The use of tagua as a crop helps to prevent clear cutting the rainforest for mining or farming purposes.
This necklace is fairly purchased from a women’s cooperative in the highlands of Ecuador. These ladies don’t just craft things to make money. They’re not just the product of a slick R&D department for profit. When you buy this necklace, you are buying a product that involved years of learned skills, passion, enthusiasm, commitment and sincerity.
