- the story
A Fair Finishing Touch
Add an eclectic pop of color to your ensemble with these intriguing dual-toned earrings. Highlighted by a glossy finish, open pendants move with the wearer as they hang from a wire hook. Each piece is carved from sustainable tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in bulk and texture.
Tagua is environmentally friendly and helps curb illegal elephant poaching, prevents deforestation, and allows local communities to make a living from the collection and processing of the seeds. All of Monica Farbiarz's tagua jewelry is handmade in a Colombian workshop that prides itself on treating workers fairly and providing the opportunity to learn life skills.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, color combinations will vary.

- the maker
When Monica Farbiarz traveled to Colombia in 2006, she had no idea that she, a dancer, musician and yoga instructor, would fall so quickly in love with the Tagua seed, a material that would inspire a full time jewelry-designing business.
She immediately found a workshop that offered her the perfect combination of quality production and fair labor practices, and enrolled in a business class to prepare for the inevitable commerce.
By 2007, she was ready to share her creations with the world, and now she's devoted to providing women with beautiful Tagua jewelry, all while helping her workers achieve their dreams. collection
