Thirty-five years ago, Far Fetched began making and selling Artisan Made jewelry from the back of a truck at craft markets in Southern California. Today, Far Fetched works with 100 artisans or artisan cooperatives producing and selling Artisan Made jewelry. Together, we have invested $15 million dollars in Trade not Aid to artisans and the artisan community since 1991!
The Far Fetched vision remains the same - to produce and sell Artisan Made jewelry that improve the lives of all from the artisan supplier to the end customer. Production continues in the same Central Mexico town employing generations of artisans working mostly in home workshops. And in accordance with their sustainably practices, they utilize reclaimed metals whenever available and their .925 Mexican Sterling Silver is always nickel free.
They are a small, purpose-driven team spanning multiple communities across the US and working in close collaboration with their supplier-partners. They follow the fair trade principals providing a fair wage, transparency, and safe working conditions and are proud of their affiliation with the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
I brought the beagle dog dog pendant because I liked that it had a combination of gold and silver metal that will match with most jewelery and outfits.
I am really pleased with the appearance and quality craftsmanship. I wish, however, that it came on a chain but I will find one for it.
I'm also glad to know that my purchase from Greater Goods will help dogs and cats in need of proper care and treatment since I am a fur baby affectionado!
I hope that they will eventually sell this pendant in a poodle design. They do have the choices of beagle, lab and a few others.
This charm (necklace) is adorable. A very solid metal. It is sturdy and cute. It’s a little bigger than I expected. Certainly no short cuts here.
Very nice piece!
