Tania uses silver and natural bio-material, such as peach pits, tagua pits, cow skin to create all kinds of imaginative designs.

If you are wondering about TAGUA, well, it’s standard jewellery design material, it seems:

A “Latin Art Jewelry” website explains that it takes several months from the moment the tagua nuts are collected to the moment the product is made and ready for sale. The tagua nut is a dried seed from the tagua palm tree, which grows in the tropical rain forests of South America (Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and Brazil). Tagua is known as “natural ivory” or “vegetable ivory”, because of its similarity with ivory — it’s hard, unbreakable, resistant and beautiful.

BUT — tells us the website — “tagua is natural, they don’t have to kill elephant in order to get it”.

How’s that for an understanding of…

NATURAL? 🙂
