Class Description:

Do you love jewelry, but think it’s too hard to make on your own? Let Amy guide you through this easy way to create a beautiful pendant using a simple slice of tagua nut and a little wire.

Our tagua nut slices are Fair Trade and come in many bright colors. We travel to Ecuador once a year to purchase our tagua from a 3 generation family who gather, cure, slice, dye, and polish each piece. We help to support this family by paying them their regular retail price for the tagua.

Tagua nuts come from a particular type of palm tree that grows near the equator. The trees grow in the wild and are more valuable than the ground underneath them, helping to save the rain and cloud forests from deforestation. The nuts are organic, as they aren’t cultivated. The family we work with uses cotton dyes to achieve the wonderful color assortment.

Amy will show you several simple techniques for capturing the tagua slices in wire. You will see different ways to finish the top of the pendant as well. A wrap here, a twist there, and viola!

Amy will have only one or 2 extra pliers for use in class.

Level: Beginners and those who would like to start wire wrapping.
