This crimson necklace consists of two rows of 15 Tagua beads, sliced thinly.
The beads are 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 inches (25 cm) long leather ties on each side of the beads.
Tagua 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.
