Have you heard of Encanto Jewels? Monica Farbiarz, owner and designer, has been creating eco-friendly jewelry using Tagua, a seed from the Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil rainforests. Encanto Jewels recently moved their operations to downtown Grass Valley, if you’d like to see their new space check out their ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, November 11th at 5:30pm. Their space in Grass Valley is their working studio, to buy directly from Encanto Jewels please contact them to make an appointment. While the business is mainly wholesale, you can purchase their jewelry online or stop by Being Green in downtown Nevada City. Or check out their Facebook page for updates and giveaways. Known for their high-quality, vibrant colors, and eco-friendly source Encanto jewelry is designed locally, but helps support the global economy by helping Columbian workers and the preservation of the rainforest. Interested in winning a pair of tagua earrings? Post a comment on this blog post and I’ll announce the winner on Saturday, November 15th.
