Deep Blue Large Hoop Studs
These beautiful blue large hoop studs are made from tagua that has been dyed and hand-carved by Magdelena of the MYA project in Quito, Ecuador, and fixed to a sterling silver ear post by Amy and Rachel from the fabulous Just Trade workshop in Peckham, London.
Each pair of studs is the result of a fair and empowering global collaboration.
'But, what is Tagua?' we hear you cry. Well, 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 completely environmentally sound alternative to animal ivory with a similar feel to imitation tortoiseshell.
As it is organic and hand-carved, the magical unique grain of the nut will be visible on each hoop - making every pair completely one-of-a-kind.
Pair with the Deep Blue Irregular Single Necklace for a truly special gift (and just ask us to gift-wrap your purchases as check-out at no extra cost).
