Luckily, we just came across this lovely Galapagos statement necklace by The Andean Collection. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Galapagos Islands, this piece features layered chips from the tagua nut—a sustainable material from South America.
And the best part? Wearing items from Andean Collection makes you feel as well as look good. While all pieces are hand crafted across eight fair trade workshops in Ecuador, thus enabling artisans to participate in the global market, they are still designed in New York to suit a fashionistas’ discerning tastes.
Andean Collection was founded in 2007 to bring sustainable change to impoverished communities in South America.
