  • the story

Bright Idea

Reminiscent of radiant agate and glossy ivory, each boomerang-shaped bead in this spectacular statement piece is carved from sustainable tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in bulk and texture.

The creation of tagua jewelry helps curb illegal elephant poaching, prevents deforestation, and allows local communities to make a living from the harvesting and processing of the seeds. Designed by Monica Farbiarz, this striking bracelet is handmade in a Colombian workshop that prides itself on treating workers fairly and providing the opportunity to learn life skills.

  • the maker

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

The product is nice and well constructed. My mom loved it but its very tight on her wrist. It seems best designed for a petite woman.

    Who knew that jewelry made from nuts could be so amazing?!? The bracelet is beautiful and lustrous. I'm looking forward to seeing people's reactions when I tell them it's made from nut shells.

        This is the perfect gift for my great niece who is in her 20's. It's stylish and unique, which matches her to the T. It is definitely going to be a conversational piece & I'm sure she'll love it.

          I purchased this to add color to my work outfits. I was a little nervous because of reviews that described this bracelet as tight. However, I am medium-boned and had no trouble with the sizing. It's fun and pretty and just as pictured.

                I received this as a gift after dropping a number of hints; I was about to buy it for myself. The bracelet is even better than the picture. I have a small wrist and often have trouble with bracelets not fitting properly but not this one! Lovely colors, and it goes with everything I have.

                  This bracelet is made of a unique material and is brightly colored. It fit my daughter-in-law's wrist, but had it been for my wrist, I would have had to return it for being too small

                    My Girlfriend says its lovely. She remarks that it is more for summer wear, but really loves the item. It looks great against her tanned skin, and the colours match that natural tone. I can see her wearing it at the beach in her lovely bikini! ;)
                    Very happy with purchase, very happy girlfriend.

                    The material is light, but strong and lustrous, with a nice tactile finish and material quality. Would recommend as a gift to your loved one or special friend.
