Simple, Stylish & Sustainable

Wild and luminous, this swingy statement piece is a chic, eco-friendly way to make any outfit pop. Reminiscent of glossy slices of agate, each bead is sustainably carved from tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in heft and texture.

A radiant way to wear eco-friendly jewelry, tagua popularity helps curb illegal elephant poaching, prevents deforestation, and allows local communities to make a living from the collection and processing of the seeds. Although tagua does not bleed or fade, it is recommended that it be kept out of direct, prolonged sunlight. 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.

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
