Zaley Necklace Set | Ivory
The demand for animal ivory has brought the elephant close to the edge of extinction. The Tagua Nut provides a practical alternative, since its vegetable ivory looks like its animal counterpart, is extremely hard, takes a high polish, and absorbs dyes readily.
The seeds are set out to dry under the tropical sun for between one and three months, depending on their water content. Afterward, they are peeled, classified according to size, cut into slices, drilled, dyed and polished. Then the local artisans hand select and combine the pieces to make beautiful handmade jewelry.
