Eco-Friendly, NUT Jewelry

These beautiful, bright jewelry pieces by Muichic are made from tagua nuts. The tagua nut is also know as vegetable ivory. The nuts are collected off the rainforest floor, dried, carved, dyed, and polished. Each nut has a different gain and once dried they are extremely hard. I love the chunky designs and bold colors!

What makes this wonderful jewelry eco-friendly? They are:
  • made from organic tagua nuts (no pesticides or foreign chemicals are used)
  • protects elephants
  • protects the rain forest
  • eco-friendly dyes
  • non-toxic and allergen free
  • made by artisans who are given a fair wage and healthy working conditions
