Simple, Stylish & Sustainable

Wild and luminous, this swingy statement piece is a chic, eco-friendly way to make any outfit pop. Reminiscent of glossy slices of agate, each bead is sustainably carved from tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in heft and texture.

A radiant way to wear eco-friendly jewelry, tagua popularity helps curb illegal elephant poaching, prevents deforestation, and allows local communities to make a living from the collection and processing of the seeds. Although tagua does not bleed or fade, it is recommended that it be kept out of direct, prolonged sunlight. 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.

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

    Comments about MULTI-COLOR DOUBLE TAGUA NECKLACE:

    This is a cute necklace--tagua on what looks like a vinyl cord. I like the way that you can wear it as a long piece or loop it to wear as a double strand. My main disappointment is that, as with most products on UncommonGoods, it is way overpriced.

      The Double Tagua necklace is beautiful and very versatile. The first one I ordered/received was not centered/balanced. The second one (exchange) was crushed in the mailing process. I'm hoping the third one I get is perfect.

            The box was in a recycled T shirt bag that was very very dirty. It would be nice if these bags were kept somewhere so they stayed clean. I washed it before wrapping it.

                  When you unwrap the darling package and open the box you will be overwhelmed with color. This necklace will delight you. First time wearing two people stopped me to complement on my necklace.

                  One problem - be careful when wearing doubled as it tends to come unlatched. Just be careful. Still very worth purchasing.

                    For everyone but really appeals to green living fans! I get compliments everywhere I go on this necklace! I wear it short and long. It's lightweight, easy to "clasp" when wearing shortened, and is so versatile it goes with all. Colorful necklaces are in and this one is also hip. I love telling people about this material and its history of being "vegetable ivory."

                    Bought this for my mom-in-law and greatly disappointed. The colors ate nice but are on a cheap string that the colored pieces are attached to and that part has glue on it that has Sharp edges and scratched her neck. Maybe I missed on the description that it was a nylon cheap necklace. Ugh! I so wanted to love this piece.
