Astrid Earrings Purple Wine
Tagua, wire, nickel-free hypoallergenic brass earring. Approx 1.5″ drop. The Tagua nut grows from the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm harvested from the rainforests and lowlands of South America. Some are gathered from the rainforest floor while others require a skilled farmer to climb high into the tropical canopy to harvest ripe pods. Through a manual, low energy process seeds are transformed into beads which have sculptural natural irregularities both in color and form. Each piece is truly one of a kind cut, carved, polished and created by hand.
