  • the story

Tagua, You're It!

Reminiscent of radiant agate and glossy ivory, the petal-shaped clusters featured in these spectacular earrings are 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 piece 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

    Cute earrings that will add a little fun to your outfit. Big enough to be seen and small enough that they won't get in the way. Colorful enough to add some pizzazz to your spring and summer wardrobes.

    I have only worn the earrings once partly because they are not put together well and feel like they will break very easily.

          The colors of the earrings are beautiful and they go well with the necklace. I found it awkward to get them in because of their shape. But they are pretty.
