These earrings are skillfully hand carved from a tagua nut*. The nut is formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface, the colour is achieved with textile dyes. This ethical jewellery is handmade in Ecuador by Magdalena and Albert, who earn a fair wage and have regular work as a result of their collaboration with Just Trade.
With sterling silver posts.
*Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.
