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.

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.
