Tagua Bracelet- Navy
The Pre-Columbian Collection
We present you with a piece of history. The Pre-columbian collection is Cienaga’s ode to the indigenous peoples of Latin America. The jewelry is based on the exact designs worn by tribal leaders discovered in archeological excavations. The shapes are not to be taken for granted, they each have a particular meaning and carry with them deep inspiration and millenary wisdom.
This beaded bracelet mixes Pre-Columbian signature gold pieces with Tagua beads, otherwise known as “vegetable ivory” derived from Palm trees native to South America. The use of this material stimulates local economies in South America, provides an alternative to cutting down rainforests for farming & is often used as an alternative to elephant ivory.
