The Cascade Earrings are made from the polished and dyed Tagua nut which grows naturally in the rainforests of South America. These earrings are hand made by artisans in a workshop that is Fair Trade. Purchasing Tagua jewelry helps the preservation of rainforest land and provides good jobs for local Colombians. These earrings are beautifully vibrant and lovely statement pieces. Both elegant and refined, they are a perfect addition to your jewelry collection.
