Five large pink tagua lentils, 20mm in size.
Each lens is approximately 20mm tall and approximately 4mm thick. The cord hole runs the full length of the lens, with a hole on each side of the lens. The cord hole has a diameter of approx. 1.8mm.
Tagua lentils come in many different colors and the grain typical of tagua nuts can be seen very well in lentils with lighter colors.
The lenses overlap slightly when mounted on wire or tape as the string hole channel goes through the lens at an angle with a hole on each side of the lens. Lentils come into their own best if you string them on without intermediate beads. If you want to combine lenses it is best to put on all the lenses at once and fill in the rest with beads etc. Necklaces made exclusively of lentils are also attractive; this results in an interesting scale effect due to the overlapping.
The tagua or stone nut is a natural product that, after drying, is cut into slices, lentils, beads, rings, etc. before it is then colored. The individual parts may have cracks, grains, brown remains of shells, etc. These are not errors. These characteristics are wanted and make up the very special design of the Tagua products. Every single piece is cut, drilled and colored by hand. No part is like the other.
Tagua products, such as pearls, are relatively heavy and cool to the touch (this is the stone character). Because of its beautiful white fruit, the tagua is also known as plant ivory. With their cool, smooth feel and their beautiful shapes, the Tagua products can be processed into extraordinary and luxurious jewellery.
