Your customers will enjoy the vibrant color and fashionable flair of this unique beaded flower necklace. The beaded necklace has strong pink tagua rounds that form a flower, strung on a double leather cord. The piece is finished with a sliding clasp to allow your customers to place the flower at the point that most complements their neckline.
Tagua has ceased to be a humble palm tree and is becoming a valued product in world markets as people recognize its use as a replacement for elephant ivory. Tagua has the same properties as ivory, your customers will appreciate how smooth, lightweight and textural the tagua beads are, with a richness just like ivory.
