Tagua Nut Bead Bracelet

About this design:

I found this bracelet in my work room in an unfinished state. Don't know when I started it, don't know why I stopped it, finally finished it Saturday.

The red beads are made from tagua nuts AKA vegetable ivory. Since the beads and spacers have a bit of a geometric look I decided to use a square toggle clasp. This another piece of jewelry better suited for a large woman.

    Nice addition to a wrist. It catches the eye. It will be noticed. I like the colors and the chunkyness of it.

    Great bracelet. How big are the tagua nut beads? Never heard of them before – had to look it up. Love the geometrics.

    Large chunky bracelets are so much fun! Love the color scheme and how those red tagua nuts take center stage. The square toggle looks great with the shape of the spacers too. I don’t think you have to be any certain size to wear this splendid piece–a little excitement is good for the soul!

    I’ve never heard of tagua nuts. Chunky bracelets are so fun to wear. I think the square toggle is a wonderful choice.
