A red necklace will always be in the spotlight: you’ll feel bright and confident in this emotionally rich color. Because of the organic nature of this necklace, the red beads appear in a spectrum from lighter red, the color of love, to deep mysterious red, the color of blood. This necklace will compliment and add dynamic contrast to your favorite black outfit.
The sliced beads are made from tagua nuts and the entire necklace is made without the use of metals. Just tie the necklace around the back of your neck using the hand cut soft leather tie. You can tie the leather at varying lengths to perfectly match your neckline. Each tagua slice is unique with faint swirls and patterns. Tagua nuts are harvested in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest where it is a natural, renewable and valuable resource to the local indigenous people.
The bib necklace has two rows of 15 tagua beads, sliced thinly. The beads are 1.25 inches by 1.5 inches (3 cm by 4 cm). In total, the length of the necklace is 40 inches long (100 cm) with 14 inch (35 cm) long leather ties to each side of the beads. Although the necklace looks chunky, tagua is very light and you will hardly notice you are wearing it. The rich dark brown leather strips are half an inch wide (1 cm) and will hold the necklace firmly in place.
This necklace was created by hand by an Ecuadorian indigenous woman named Olga. Artisans in the Andes used fair trade methods to purchase this necklace including paying in advance and paying a fair market rate to provide Olga with a profit over the cost of the goods to pay for her labour and creativity.
