Hi Sara, how did you meet Tagua beads?
About 4 years ago I started making accessories and in 2009 I was going to participate in a fashion event, the Yambal Fashion Week presenting a collection based on elements from our Ecuadorian coast. I started a search of materials in various places and online and found in EcuadorianHands.com an unlimited variety of parts and pieces in coconut and tagua that were perfect for what I needed. I made a first order of proof and was fascinated with the quality, variety, colors and beauty of the pieces that I acquired, which has allowed me since then to further develop my creativity by combining such exquisite materials in my designs, to provide my clients with pieces original, striking, and very accessible costs.
What influenced your decision when buying tagua beads?
First of all, the variety of pieces and parts that are offered, both in the shapes and in the colors, as well as the quality in the finish; Not to mention the excellence in prices and service offered.
What are your favorite beads to work a necklace? Which materials are your top 5 or top 10?
I love the centers of coconut, the arrocillo, pearls, eggs and lentils of tagua.
