This unique pendant has been crafted from an areca nut encased in buffalo leather. The buffalo leather and areca nut have both been sourced in Nepal and complemented by a hemp cord. The Nepalese name for these large areca seeds is 'Supari' although they are often erroneously called 'Betel nut' as it is usually wrapped in betel leaves and sold as 'Paan' to be chewed as a mild stimulant.

The 6 ply cord has been crafted from wax coated hemp thread and the toggle has been carved from Ipe (Brazilian hardwood).
