Sustainable materials and exquisite design merge in one breathtaking necklace. Thinly-sliced tagua nuts are collected from the rainforest floor, carved, dyed, and etched by women in Colombia to create knockout works of wearable art.

Since the year 2000, entrepreneurs Ana Piedrahira and Javier Cardenas have been working with low-income women artisans to improve their lives for the better. Their fair-trade enterprise, Sapia, employs thirty-two women, with over fifty more working as independent contractors -- each receiving a living wage for her work.

  • Bronze, Gold, or Slate
  • Tagua nut, acai seed, leather, & natural dyes
  • Approx. 1" - 1.5" L (2.5 - 3.8 cm)
  • Pendant: Approximately 1.5" H (3.8 cm)
    Leather cord: Adjusts from 19-35" L (48-89 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Colombia

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!

January 7, 2014 - This beautiful jewelry, ordered in Slate, was a Christmas gift for a friend, who was delighted to receive it. I am considering it as a birthday gift for my cousin as well.

January 6, 2014 - Just as beautiful as shown!
