Stay Un-Definable

Within the tropical forests of Ecuador, a mild breeze knocks tagua nuts loose from palm trees. Paola Delgado finds new use for the sturdy seeds by shaving, shaping, and dying them into colorful beads. Her bright, bohemian River Rock necklace brings a bit of life and richness from the Southern Hemisphere to your Tuesday morning meeting. Handmade 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 was working on Wall Street when she realized she wanted to do something more fulfilling. So she moved back to Peru, her home country, to search for inspiration. While traveling, she met a group of artisans making beautiful jewelry using Amazonian seeds, she knew she had found her calling. Today, Paola runs a small jewelry-making business using tagua nuts, a humane alternative to ivory. Since her team harvests the nuts after they’ve fallen, no damage is done to the rainforest or animals.
