The Story of a Color

For Tibetan monks, teal symbolizes the infinity of sea and sky. Egyptians believe its blazing pigment holds truth and faith. When you wear this bright piece, you might remember these ancient sentiments, but you might just bring out the color of your eyes. Each bead is delicately carved from tagua nuts found deep within the Ecuadorian rainforest. Keep it as a long single strand like falling water, or wrap it twice so its beads coalesce in spirited pattern. Handmade by Paola Delgado in Ecuador.

We spoke with Paola about her background, her love of tagua, and her relationship to her artisans. Read more on our blog.

“I fell in love with tagua for the small nuances that make it special.”

Paola Delgado had worked for four years on Wall Street when she began to yearn for a more fulfilling and philanthropic occupation. She put her New York life on hold to search for inspiration in Peru, where she grew up. When she came across artisans making beautiful jewelry by hand using Amazonian seeds, she knew she had found her calling, and started her own jewelry business in 2011. Paola's company makes jewelry of sustainable materials only, and provides educational opportunities, healthcare benefits, and fair wages to her artisan partners. Tagua seeds, the company's signature material, are often called "vegetable ivory." They grow on an Amazonian rainforest palm tree, and are harvested after they've fallen to the ground, so no damage is done to the rainforest, or, of course, any animals.
