Giveaway: Tagua nut beads from Ecuadorian Hands



Why am I featuring tagua nut beads during Gemstone & Pearls month?  Because I really like the concept of  a renewable bead source, which gemstones definitely are not.  And look at those colors!  

I added Ecuadorian Hands to our list of suppliers quite some time ago as a bead supplier to consider.  Tagua nut beads, aka exotic ivory, are grown and harvested in Ecuador and crafted into beautiful beads and pendants that I know you'll want to try out yourself...



***Free Stuff Alert!!!***

Would you like to win a nice selection of tagua nut beads from among those show above?  I can't tell you exactly what beads you will get because they will be shipped to you directly by Ecuadorian Hands, but I'm sure they'll be wonderful!  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!

Please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: July 11, 2012

I think the tagua nut is finally coming out as the beautiful resource it is. I also have netsukes carved out of tagua. Very similar to ivory without the loss of life.
