Looking for tree ornaments that are handmade and ecofriendly?
This beautiful ornament is a flat disc of glass with a bubbly surface texture, and has a design of baby sea turtles on a warm, sunny beach with palm trees. The ornament is made from sustainable products and Fair Trade certified.
Each ornament is crafted by hand from fused glass and beads of vegetable ivory, also called tagua. The tagua tree is commonly known as the ivory palm and the seeds it produces have qualities that are almost indistinguishable from elephant ivory.
Tagua seeds can be carved and dyed like real ivory and are frequently made into beads such as those hanging from the ribbon ends on this ornament.
Each piece is unique due to the process of fusing the glass to capture air bubbles inside. Harvested and made in Ecuador.
Size: Flat disc 2-1/2" in diameter, about 1/8" thick
