Colored With Care

Eco-friendly and produced using fair trade practices, the radiant colors steeped into this tagua necklace are reminiscent of semi-precious stones and glossy ivory. At 38 inches, the generously proportioned, silk cord and multi-hued bead necklace can be worn either doubled up or left hanging.

As a natural and animal-free source of sustainable carving material, tagua is a humane alternative to ivory, which is why it's often referred to as "vegetable ivory." Although tagua does not bleed or fade, it is recommended that it be kept out of direct, prolonged sunlight and dried, if wet, before storing. All of Monica Farbiarz's tagua products are handmade in a Colombian workshop, where workers are treated fairly and often help design parts of the collection.

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

Can only wear long not doubled

By

Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

Looks like you should be able to wear this necklace doubled up but I really couldn't (was more like choker style and not very comfortable). I don't have a very large neck. So disppaointed in that; but the necklace is nice and will be a good addition to a more modern/funky look when worn long.

Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

This is a beautiful, fun necklace that will get lots of comments. It is playful and unique. It is long, which is great, but I wish it also would wrap around 2x because it would also be a cool necklace worn higher on the neck. I gave this necklace to two different people as a gift and they each loved it!

Love it but...

    Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

    The necklace arrived safe and sound and I have to say it's my favorite necklace ever, so for that I'd give 20 stars. However after the 6th time of wearing it one of the strands came undone that go between two of the colorful circles. It seems it just wasn't "stitched" properly.

    I sent an email to Uncommon Goods to notify them and instead of handling it, they send me an annoying email "how did it break" which implies I did something to ruin it. How condescending. I've replied back twice and no answer. So I guess on Monday I'll have to start the process of calling and hope I get somewhere. Definitely poor customer service.

      Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

      I am more than pleased with this fun necklace. I get comments when I wear it - at book club, from checkout gals at the grocery, from my art teacher. It's stylish and goes with so many colors. (I'd order the earrings, but the reviews say they are very small so I hesitate to go there. Too bad, one disk of the larger segments of the necklace would still be lightweight but more of a statement.)

        Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

        I bought this as a gift for a friend, but it turned out to be much bigger than I thought it would be. She is a small lady and would have been lost in both the length and the size of the necklace. I think it was a beautiful necklace, just not what I wanted, so I sent it back for something else!

        Like the added, extra touch to wear for a little "dress up" to simple summer clothes. Light weight looking and feeling; nice addition to wardrobe for overseas wear too.

        Even Nicer Than it Looks!

        from Towson, MD

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about MULTI-COLOR OPEN CIRCLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

        This necklace arrived last week and have already worn it 4 times. I can't even count the number of compliments I have received. I didn't give it 5 stars because the loop to adjust the length is a little bulky, but obviously that has not kept me from wearing the necklace.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I can't believe how quickly the necklace arrived-- 2 days ahead of schedule. I was also please to see that it cam packed in a little bag made from a recycled t-shirt.

          Saw something similar in a magazine, but the colors were limited. Searched all over the web untill I found this at uncommon goods. Has every color in the rainbow, so it matches everything, and it is unique. My friend immediately saw it and ordered herself one.
