Designed and hand-crafted by women artisans, these earrings are truly unique. Built with Tagua, better known as vegetable ivory, and the elytra of jewel beetles, these ~2" length earrings are sustainably crafted and ethically sourced.

The Jewel Beetle Elytra are collected and sustainably raised as a food source in Thailand. Naturally durable, these beetle shells possess incredibly deep and iridescent color variations.
The Tagua, also known as vegetable ivory for its color and strength, is sustainably collected and cut by women living in Otavalo, Ecuador.
