Folks, I've seen a lot of tagua necklaces over the years but this design is special. The tagua nut was cut into pieces. The outer husk was left in someplaces 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 multi-colors you see. They were strung by someone who really knows what he or she is doing. There are knots throughout the piece and the sting is adjustable. It measures 19" from the adjustable knot to the bottom of the necklace. The carving on some of the pieces really adds a lot.
