Bead Necklace in Red with Wood Beads and Natural Vegetable Ivory Tagua Nut


A chunky statement necklace in red vegetable dyed wood beads is adorned with a deep red natural vegetable ivory tagua nut in this woman's handmade necklace. It is lovely worn with a summer dress or casual shirt for party, work or shopping or a special event.

The tagua nut measures 23 x 30 mm with dark shell markings which add charm and interest and attest to its organic nature. Fifteen and twenty millimeter vegetable dyed, wood beads complete the 45.5 cm (18") necklace which closes with a silver tone Tibetan heart and arrow toggle clasp.

This necklace has been one of my popular pieces making a statement with its cheerful color and one of a kind tagua bead.

The natural vegetable ivory tagua nut is an eco friendly material. It can be used to replace elephant ivory and helps sustain the rain forests of the Central and South American Amazon.

Care instructions

My sterling silver or silver plated items can be polished gently with a quality jewelry cloth for that purpose or protected with a quality non-wax car polish such as Nu Finish if you do not like the natural patina that develops over time. Use a soft non-chemical cloth for polishing gold.

As dust, pollutants, chlorine and perfume and other cosmetics dull the appearance of pearls, stones, gold vermeil or gold filled jewelry or sterling silver over time it is recommended to apply make-up before putting on jewelry and to store your pieces in an air tight bag. It is best to remove them while sleeping and showering and swimming.

Textile cords can be spot washed with a gentle fabric cleaner, patted dry and left to dry out of the sun.
