This fascinating necklace is made from hand carved beads created from the Tagua or Ivory nut, which is a seed from certain palm trees ~ also known as the Corozo nut which is a South American nut which looks similar to the Brazil nut but much larger.

Some buttons are still made from it. The beads have been strung on a thin wire, all very sturdy. This necklace will not only garner compliments, but carries with it a fascinating explanation.
