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.
