A Better Bib Necklace

Tastefully bold, this striking necklace is an eye-catching, eco-friendly way to add intrigue to any outfit. Reminiscent of radiant agate and glossy ivory, each open bead in this staggered statement piece is carved from sustainable tagua, commonly referred to as "vegetable ivory" for its likeness in bulk and texture.

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.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

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.

My mom bought this necklace for herself, her sister, my sister-in-law, and me for Christmas, and we ALL love it! The variety of colors look good with just about any outfit, and the adjustable length customizes the fit.

I've noticed that the material used to tie the tagua nut pieces together is a bit itchy/irritating to my skin, so I tend to wear it over higher neck tops rather than against bare skin.

This baby is STUNNING, and is a MAGNET FOR COMPLIMENTS from both men and women. I wore it to a conference last week and received 5 compliments within 20 minutes of arriving. I'd call that a keeper!

This is a guys perspective as I bought this for a "just because" gift for my girlfriend. She said it was "ok" but I was extremely disappointed. Does not look like the catalog picture. Picture in catalog shows the colors as being more transluscent. The pieces actually look like hard,shiny,colored plastic....remember the A,B,C's you put on your refridgerator? Looks terribly cheap! There is nothing unique about it other than the catalog says its Taqua Nuts..I just see hard cheap looking plastic! The necklace was also bigger than I expected. It seemed to cover my girlfriends whole chest, speaking as to width of the item. I don't normally take the time to write things like this but I was just extremely disappointed because I bought it as a special gift. Gonna exchange for the vegetable parchment cuffs or the sari scarf. Sorry Uncommon Goods :(

      She had seen one at Palm Springs and really liked it. Not knowing she wanted one I saw it when my friend was wearing one. Thought it would make a perfect gift for my daughter-in-law.
