When ripe, Tagua seeds are harvested and sun-dried. After losing all their moisture they become rock solid resembling ivory in color, texture, and hardness, hence their nickname: “Vegetable Ivory”. At this point, the hard seeds can be polished, dyed, cut, and shaped into beautiful beads that become Muichic natural jewelry.
A Macrame in the back makes it adjustable, giving it the versatility of being worn long or short. Two Tagua fragments finish it off at the back one at each end tip.
