A Different Ball of Wax

Add a touch of exoticism to any outfit with these eye-catching necklaces. Reminiscent of radiant agate and glossy ivory, each bead is carved from sustainable tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in bulk and texture. Each exuberant element is enlivened by artisans using Batik, a traditional method wherein a design is applied using wax, then the object is dyed and the wax is removed to reveal a distinctive and unique silhouette of the wax seal.

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.

CO

Made in Colombia

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.

Comments about TAGUA BATIK NECKLACES:

Wore it to work today for the first time, got tons of compliments. Very unusual, stands out without being too much in one's face, highlights the blue in my eyes which are a mix of green with specks of blue and brown, love it!
