Let’s admit it – we all have tons of throwaway jewelry. You know the kind you buy from the little corner jewelry store on impulse, or from the fast fashion chain because it’s under $10. Costume jewelry may be fun to throw on from time to time but for the holidays, instead of some disposable baubles, you might want to invest in worthwhile statement piece that has staying power.
Try on this Tagua Bib necklace from The Andean Collection for size. The necklace is hand made in Ecuador from Tagua seed chips and leather. The Tagua nut grows from the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm, and the seeds are sustainably harvested before being carved into jewelry. Afterwards, the seeds polished and dyed using textile dyes.
Priced at $68 and available in several yummy colors, the Tagua Bib necklace is the ideal holiday gift for the eco-friendly fashionista!
