These simple studs feature brass crescent moon shapes, hammered by hand to give them texture, and set in a circle hand-carved from tagua.
Tagua is a seed from a type of palm that grows in the South American rainforests. Often known as vegetable ivory, tagua is an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to animal ivory.
These earrings have been hand made by skilled craftspeople from the MYA group in Ecuador. Their workers are fairly paid for their labour.
