Tagua Elephant Pendant

£26.00

Product Information

This pendant is hand carved from a tagua nut, a seed from a type of palm that grows in the South American rainforests. Often known as vegetable ivory, tagua is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to animal ivory.  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 pendant is handmade by Carlos in Sasote, Ecuador.
