Shipping to United States: Free

Only one made, this Tribal Wounaan Indians sloth pendant is the main protagonist of a necklace made by me using tagua nut claws in different colors, bronze glass beads, achirilla seeds, acai berries in pistachio green, teal, butter yellow, forest green and natural ivory, coconut disks in earth tone, and tagua half moon.

Most of the materials in this pendant are sourced using as vendors sustainable and rainforest oriented shops in Etsy, I am proud to support with as Etsy artisan.

The pendant is big and made an statement, it is 3 inches wide and 2 inches tall. Let met tell me about this artistic piece,it is made by Wounaan indians located in Panama rainforests.

The Wounaan and Embera Indian Artisans carve the tagua nut with hand tools and polish the tagua with a variety of fine abrasives; not varnishes or lacquer is used. The natural color of the tagua is ivory, but the colors you see in the tiger design are produced by dyeing the tagua with natural extracts of plants and earth, using the traditional methods for dyeing basket fibers.

Artists that have acccess to fine India inks sometimes paint the carving. Income earned form the sales of tagua crafts reduces the needs to destroy the rainforest for agriculture. Basically conservation of the rainforest is why I have been in the business of tagua jewelry creation and designing since 2010!

It is a short necklace 17 inches length, hits a collar bone, has a Macrame on top that allows to extend the necklace up to 20 inches in its maximum length.

I prefer to wear it as a rather short necklace over collar bone, but goes up to over the chest extended.
