    The the cool design and colors.

    Being eco friendly and helping out people in a local community instead of some rich, corporate who only cares about how much of a bonus the executives are going to receive on the backs of everyone else is an added bonus.

    I’ve know Monica for a few years and have always admired the pieces she is wearing; her own! I also notice her jewelry on others and know is it hers; it is unique and very colorful. Tagua is a versatile nut, many uses; I have buttons on a jacket which are beautiful, strong and made from a sustainable product!

    Her designs look fun. Thanks for sharing – especially since she is selling out of another store.
