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
