Folks, Ive seen a lot of tagua necklaces over the years but this design is my favorite. The tagua nut was cut thinly into pieces. The outer husk was left in some places that clearly identifies the pieces as tagua. The beads are tagua as well. Then the pieces and beads were dyed to give the necklace the lovely blue color. Then it was strung by someone who really knows what he or she is doing. There are knots throughout the piece and the clasp is well made. It measures 14.5" from the clasp to the bottom ring and it is a double strand necklace.
