“Color By Amber isn’t just a collection of amazing jewelry,” said Beth Moga, an Eau Claire native who is also an elementary school art teacher. “It’s a piece of art that tells the stories about women and their families from all over the world.”
Color By Amber is a unique company that partners with female artisan communities around the world to make eco-friendly, globally sourced jewelry. What makes Color By Amber’s necklaces, bracelets and other accessories so unique? This Utah-based company works with artisans in 14 developing countries to create “interlayers,” or recycled textiles that are the staple of each piece of Color by Amber jewelry. Sourced largely from natural elements and made in the artisans’ native traditions, the interlayers are then encased in Ecoresin, a lightweight, durable material unique to Color By Amber. This results in pieces made from natural elements like hand-spun silks, mohair and artisan-crafted fossil leaves that are durable, wearable and don’t react with sunscreen, lotion or perfume.
What’s more, every Color By Amber purchase supports job creation, small businesses and families in the region from which each piece originates.
“I learned about CBA during a time in my life when I wanted to do good for others and do good for myself,” said Moga. “This line of jewelry empowers me to empower others through sustainable fashion and product, as well as share the stories of our artisans, helping them create a better future for themselves and their families.”
“Feeling good about what we wear and knowing the stories of who it impacts is exactly what this company strives to do each day,” continued Moga. “I’m excited to share CBA with Eau Claire during the Global Market!
