Introducing tagua beads into the beading community has been a very hard task, very time consuming, it has been such a nice adventure. I’ve got to meet very nice people, customers that have become friends. Such a pleasant experience.
The other day I’ve got an email from Alex, my friend in Russia. He was on vacation in Greece, and took the time to take this picture of a tagua beaded necklace, and emailed it to me. I guess he found this in a crafts shop or gift shop. I am not really sure.
Here are Alex words:
I just came back from Athens.
Look what I saw where.
It was a small shop with products from Ecuador.
I took a photo special for you ))).
Sorry. I can took only one photo. Seller didn’t allow to take a pictures ((( “
This necklace has so many tagua beads. I will try to make a list here (hope I don’t miss any single one):
It is really cool when somebody takes the time to do something like this. Alex, thank you very much for helping me to introduce tagua beads, the exotic ivory. Ecofriendly and protects elephants! Thank you my friend!
