I love making eco friendly jewellery and when I saw these super vegetable ivory eco beads all smooth and tactile, I thought what a wonderful pendant it would make. The Tagua nuts are non edible fruit of the palm tree In Sputh America in Equador .

I really love the smooth textures and durability of these nuts and perfect to create one of a kind jewellery pieces.

I choose a black slice with a big hole centrally. It’s seems unique and of course you can match it with so many outfits for a hippy vibe.

The silver bail enables the chain to be threaded through easily. There are many choices according g to your personal preference. I like this one to add character and style without being too fussy. Remember to squeeze tightly with pliers to prevent it from slipping off the chain.


Snake chain in sterling silver for this piece is easily linked through the bail and soon it’s all ready to wear!

I am so delighted with this simple yet statement pendant. It can of course be personalised with varied length chains. And would look equally good on a faux suede one too.
