Deco-rate

Delicious colors and elemental Art Deco shapes come together in a playful pattern on Monica Farbiarz's elegant and fun necklace. Dyed a vibrant rainbow of shades and polished to a high gloss, the hand-carved beads are strung on silk cord with seed beeds for added texture. The beautiful beads are made from sustainable tagua nuts. Also known as "vegetable ivory," their grain is close and very hard like that of elephant tusks, but they come from a plentiful South American tree, not an endangered animal. The nuts fall to the ground when mature, so harvesting them does no harm to the tree. The colorful piece adds movement and charm to dresses, and a bright, stylish focal point to jeans and T-shirt. Handmade in Colombia.

California

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.

This is a very simple but pretty necklace, I think I would characterize it as funky but stylish (right up my alley!). The Tagua beads are smooth and colorful, and are cut into cute shapes, and the necklace has a sliding clasp so it can be adjusted to any length. Very glad I treated myself.
