This wonderful Tagua necklace is both stylish and fair trade.
Handmade in Columbia, the "Rosa de Tagua" necklace is approx. 55cm (20") long, and features natural Tagua seeds that have been thinly sliced before being finished and threaded onto a leather cord.
The Tagua is not shaped before slicing, and therefore the slices are in the natural, irregular shape of the original seed. These seeds have not been dyed either, and so have the natural Cream / White inner colour of the Tagua seed with a Brown outer.
The necklace is very lightweight, and has a threaded bead fastening.
The discs used in this necklace are Tagua seeds that have been sliced and smoothed. Tagua is the hardened fruit of the Ivory-nut Palm Tree, which flourishes in the tropical forests from Paraguay to Panama, and is often used as a substitute for elephant ivory because of its properties and similarities.
Please note that this necklace has been individually handmade, and therefore all dimensions are approximate and subject to minor variations.

Women for Conservation (until recently known as Amparo Crafts) are a superb addition to our roster of suppliers. On first meeting owner, Elizabeth, we were very impressed by the fair trade and eco mission she was undertaking with her company.
Not only are Women for Conservation's handmade bracelets and necklaces stylish and great quality, but they come with impressive fair trade and eco credentials. The label of every piece of jewellery has the name of the artisan who made it, and you can read their personal story on the artisan page on their website.
Women for Conservation was established to offer an income and a better way of life for women living in areas rich in biodiversity, whose only prior means of survival was to exploit the natural resources around them in order to provide for their families.
The project provides opportunities for women in these rural communities by training them to make environmentally friendly handmade jewellery using sustainably harvested exotic seeds, and then selling their products ensuring a fair wage, helping to increase income generation within impoverished communities in the buffer zones of protected areas.
By buying our products you are both empowering these women and supporting conservation of the rainforest of Colombia.

November and December are the busiest time for our postal service and orders which are sent First Class, as all your All's Fair purchases will be, can take several days to arrive instead of the usual 1-2 days. Therefore we recommend you order as early as possible so you can be sure you get your items in plenty of time for you to wrap them up.
Additionally, we are taking part in various events during November and December which may mean we are unable to process your order in our usual timescale. Between 1st and 18th November we will only be posting orders on Mondays and Tuesdays. If your order is urgent - a birthday or anniversary present rather than a Christmas present, please let us know and we will make every effort to process the order and get the goods to you sooner.
Customers outside of the UK will have their order shipped by Royal Mail's International Standard service. The cost for delivery depends on the weight of the goods you are purchasing, and ranges from £2 to £20 - you can see the exact cost of shipping in the Shopping Basket before you checkout.
We recommend you order before 30 November if you require any items for Christmas delivery outside the UK.
We are confident that you will be delighted with your purchase, however to ensure that you are completely satisfied Accessory Fair offers a "no quibbles" 14-day returns policy.
We realise that our normal 14-day returns period isn't much use if you're buying a Christmas present for someone a month before the big day. What if they don't like it, or it doesn't fit??
For this reason we have extended our standard returns period for Christmas gifts, and you now have until the 8th January 2019 to return any gifts that you have purchased.
And don't forget that this is a 'no quibbles' guarantee - so if, for any reason, it isn't suitable, feel free to send it back to us for a refund or replacement.
