Each bead is approximately 1.25 inches by 1.5 inches (3 cm by 4 cm).
The entire length of the necklace is 40 inches long (100 cm) with 10 inch (25 cm) long cotton sliding knot ties on each side of the beads.
Tagua, also known as Vegetable Ivory, grows on palm trees in the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador. Indigenous people gather the nuts and dry them in the sun. Tagua is harvested sustainably from the Rainforest. It’s very hard, light and durable and can be carved just like ivory.
This necklace set makes a cute artisan gift for women who love boho costume jewelry pieces with organic flare.
