I enjoy supporting the planet to save waste and these eco friendly Tagua nuts are the non edible fruit of palm in Equador.

In the process the pieces of nut are cut sliced and then dyed into colourful shiny tactile beads. So many to choose from!

Green Tagua nuts

The sliced beads I choose are varied shades of green And luckily for me pre drilled holes for fixings. They also can be are easily drilled if you have the mini hand drill attachment on rotary drill.

inuae a round nosed pair of pliers that help to grip and add fixings .

I like the idea of dark green mid green and light green all on one earring!

Put onto jump ring
Three slices

I layer up onto the silver jump ring using the round nosed pliers. Large slice on bottom mid size then small one.

next is time to repeat the process for the other earring and then add a second jump ring to hang the ear hooks on.

Jump rings

I use sterling silver quality large sized ear hooks to prevent any irritation with earlobes and to keep these lovelies in your ears!

I love the result and it’s super pretty unique pair of eco earrings.
