Drop-Dead Gorgeous

Tastefully striking, this colorful necklace is an eye-catching, eco-friendly way to add intrigue to any outfit. Reminiscent of radiant agate and glossy ivory, each open, drop-shaped bead in this concentric statement 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.

Necklace: 16"L (with additional 3"L adjustable) chain.

Monica Farbiarz

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

Comments about ESPIRALE TAGUA BEADED NECKLACE:

The dyed wood is really pretty, the colors are bold and the design is unique. The beaded string is OK, but the chain that they use to lengthen the necklace is really cheap metal and the links are not finished well and they pick at your neck. My skin is particularly sensitive to metal other than silver or gold, so I will probably have to replace the metal chain. If I had known there was bare metal, I probably wouldn't have purchased it.

      Gave this as a gift to a co-worker and she loved it. She likes bright colors so I thought this would appeal to her. She & I also loved that it sustains and promotes jobs for others.
