Tagua Nut Jewelry – not just necklaces!

tagua nut ring on ring finger, left hand.You can make or buy tagua nut rings – a great use for smaller tagua nuts.  Drilling through the center also eliminates the void but be careful when you drill:  you will need a very sharp drill, preferably a drill press, and a vice.  Drill s-l-o-w-l-y – you don’t want to crack it!  After it’s been drilled, you can carve it, sand it dye it and polish it to make a beatiful ring!  Great as an insert into a traditional metal ring as well, either dyed or scrimshawed.
