Art, Meet Jewelry
In Ecuador, a tropical breeze knocks tagua nuts from palm trees. Paola Delgado and her team of women artisans collect the sturdy seeds, and transform their organic shapes into colorful geometric ones. Her sustainable beads known as "vegetable ivory" feel reminiscent of modern art, giving an everyday outfit a graphic edge and pop of color. Finished with an adjustable cord, the versatile piece makes a thoughtful gift for environmentally minded or fashion forward friends. Handmade in Ecuador.
