A necklace with two skilfully hand carved tagua nut pendants.
The shapes and colours of this necklace are inspired by the artworks in the American Dream: pop to the present exhibition.
The nut is formed using a variety of sanding processes and polished to achieve a smooth surface, the colour is achieved with textile dyes.
Tagua is a nut from a type of palm that grows in the South American jungle. Often known as vegetable ivory, it is a sustainable and environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory.
