Tagua (aka exotic ivory) only exists in Ecuador, so I'm told. As a renewable resource, using carved tagua nuts helps to protect the rain forest. And now there is a site that not only sells the beads, but also provides instructional videos on projects to use them in: EcuadorianHands. I thought this would be a good site to share with you during "Stringing Month" here on Beading Arts...a new material to make your designs sing!
