Pretty Pink Eco-Jewellery
Pretty Pink Eco-Jewellery

This small business’ jewellery is made with a very unusual material – vegetable ivory (also known as the tagua nut). Neither vegetable nor ivory, this nut is native to Brazil, and is only commercially harvested by hand from the forest floor after two years, so that the local wildlife get first dibs!

With this material, Pretty Pink Eco-Jewellery creates necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more, with a percentage of the profits going towards forest restoration.

Emotional post: I’ve had a brilliant week, reporting from my favourite horticultural trade show in the world, @ipmessen ⭐️ It was really really good to be there, especially to be creating content, finding ways to report on the highlights, and generally showcasing the event. I remember about five years ago, imagining and wishing that I could do such a role at the show. Now, look where I am, stood in the loading area of an international trade show without any hint of a hi-vis! 🤓Super cool week, and thanks for liking all the posts and all that jazz! 😝 ...
