Bits Tagua Earrings
Playful, fun, and full of color, these dangle tagua tassel earrings are handmade with small bits of tagua nut which hang from four cotton strings. Surgical steel findings. A fun and uncommon accessory that goes well with any outfit. All the tagua beads used are sustainable, organic, vegan and biodegradable: 100% vegetable ivory (Tagua seeds). These tagua earrings are fair trade and ethically handmade in Colombia. Muichic Natural Jewelry is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation. When ripe, tagua seeds are harvested and dried for 6 to 9 months. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut and shaped into beautiful beads that become Muichic’s natural jewelry.
