This minimalist collection shows off the natural characteristics of the tagua nut and is a collaboration of skills by our makers from South America. Hand carved tagua from Ecuador is combined with simple brass forms that are hand cut by the women at the Hope Jewellery project in Peru. The final assembly of these pieces is completed by the Just Trade UK team of makers in their Peckham studio.
With silver plated earring posts.
This product comes packaged in a Just Trade box and includes information about the makers behind the piece.
Earrings size 3cm x 4.5cm
Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal. If your tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth. Although tagua is a fairly hardwearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip. Never immerse your tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack.
Brass is likely to tarnish over time. If you want to restore the original shine to the brass we recommend you clean it with Brasso and a soft cloth.
