Beaded Necklace

Handmade | Eco Friendly | Includes Earrings

Use this this lovely blue and brown beaded necklace and matching earrings to express your imagination and freedom.  Blue represents both the sky and the sea to get you thinking of wide open spaces.  This necklace has a strong dynamic blue for a positive effect on the mind and body.  The blue is well balanced by the earthy brown in an equally strong shade.  The brown beads bring warmth and approachability to the piece.

The details:

  • Handmade with tagua and acai beads, with a few coconut beads
  • All beads are from the Amazon jungle
  • Beaded portion is 12 inches (30 cm) long with adjustable tie to make the piece match your neckline
  • Matching brown tagua earrings are included

The large beads in this necklace are made from slices of tagua.  Tagua grows on palm trees in swampy parts of the Amazon jungle. It’s a sustainable resource that grows naturally in the jungle. When you buy tagua, you encourage local industry to maintain these important trees along with their natural habitat: A key step in preserving the Rainforest. Once dried, tagua nuts are sliced, dyed and polished. For this particular necklace, the tagua beads were cut and dyed by the local artisans that we work with at Artisans in the Andes. Our artisan used organic dyes that give the beads a rich gorgeous color, but allows the natural swirls of the tagua to shine through. The small beads are acai and coconut – also from the Amazon.

The necklace has a long double string with a sliding macramé knot.  The necklace can be opened wide to slip easily over your head, then pulled tightly to suit the neckline of your outfit.

This necklace was made by an indigenous woman in the Andes of Ecuador, while the beads were cut, polished and dyed by her husband. We used fair trade methods to purchase this necklace, including paying in advance and paying a fair price that covers the cost of the materials as well as a fair price for the time involved in making the piece.

Customer Comments: “This piece of jewelry exceeded my expectations… I am a huge fan of costume jewelry, and what I love about this necklace is the vibrant colour, unique material, and interesting design, along with the fact that it is so light I don’t even realize I’m wearing it!  And it also happens to match one of my dresses perfectly…”  Lisa M, Canada  "The colors are very unique, but natural, colors that I never thought would somehow compliment my skintone - it must be because of the natural material, the tagua."
