Andean culture comes alive in our handcrafted collection of jewelry made with organic materials including dried acai berries and nuts indigenous to South America. Tagua jewelry, which is also known as vegetable ivory, is made from sundried nuts of the tagua palm. To create these tagua nut necklaces, our jewelry artisans combine color-processed coconut and acai beads for eye-catching pieces that can be worn with casual or formal outfits. Color and texture patterns are inspired by traditional Andean craft that is now preserved and immortalized in these timeless pieces.
For those who favor subtlety in design, the rope chain necklace made from acai beads presents a sophisticated choice. Beads are carefully selected for uniform sizing and are color-treated for a uniform effect. These handmade necklaces can be worn flat, wrapped repeatedly for a tiered look or layered with other necklaces to make a dramatic fashion statement. Jewelry made from environmentally friendly products delivers a socially relevant message while supporting economic growth in the Andean nations.
Our Andean collection of statement necklaces, extended length rope necklaces and other pieces reflects our commitment to fair trade jewelry that spares animals from harm and uses sustainable materials harvested with minimum environmental impact.
