Far Fetched, a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation, aspires to create heartfelt, inspiring jewelry while following socially and environmentally conscientious business practices. Each piece is handcrafted by artisans in Taxco, Mexico, an area rich in culture and craft, using centuries-old silversmithing techniques coupled with new, innovative methods. All pins, bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces are .925 sterling silver, brass, or copper.
In 1994, Gustavo Gonzales started making jewelry as a young man, employed by a small neighborhood shop that produced Far Fetched designs. After two years of learning the trade, Gustavo started his own shop in his family’s home. Today, Gustavo is a top artisan and is always looking to learn more. The goal of Far Fetched to give back through programs intended to improve the artisans’ standard of living. They encourage opportunities for growth, provide the latest equipment, consistent work, and incentives to the artisan’s children for receiving good grades in school. Far Fetched also works with the local art and jewelry university in Mexico to expand the range of products the artisans can make.
Far Fetched jewelry is as individual as the hand that created it and as unique as the person that wears it.
