T.A.O. (Together As One) is a company that creates jewelry, sculptures, cards and music, all in the name of family, kinship and community. Each piece they creates represents the coming together of people to support creativity, fair trade and ethics in local and global development. As part of Gloster Global, Together As One contributes to fundraisers and has partnered with the Network for Good to raise money for a variety of non-profit groups.

The positive energy behind the creation of T.A.O. is what draws me to it, but the beauty of their artwork, whether through jewelry, sculpture, etc. keeps me coming back to their site to see what they have to offer. Once before, I had the opportunity to review jewelry from T.A.O. and I loved it so much that I was very excited to get another chance to wear and write about more of their work.

This time, I received the T. A. O. Together as One Pendant and Earrings w/ Rhodolite Garnets. They are just as lovely as I thought they would be, and pictures just can’t do them justice. I love the rhodolite garnets and how they are set at the top of the pendant and earrings. The colour is beautiful and they accent the silver and black of the jewelry and rope nicely. I love that they are a matching set and they really complement each other well when worn together.





The earrings are approximately 24mm each in diameter with 7 x 5 mm pear shaped Rhodolite Garnet stones. The earrings have lever-back wires and come boxed. Artfully crafted in Costa Rica by a family owned manufacturer, all of the exceptional jewelry is made fromArgentium Silver making it more tarnish resistant and durable than traditional sterling. Like traditional sterling, Argentium is also 92.5% silver, but some of the copper normally found in sterling is replaced with germanium. This unique alloy is more environmentally friendly than other sterling because it does not have to undergo the same toxic chemical treatments as traditional sterling to produce a good finish, and it requires less energy consumption.

Together As One cards

T.A.O. is also making cards and they sent some cards from the Pet Edition. The cards come bound nicely in this paper jacket, and they have pictures of gorgeous dogs on each one. The cards themselves are blank inside and made of a very high quality and heavy paper. They will make excellent thank you cards.

TAO Pet Edition Cards

Aside from jewelry and cards, T.A.O. also makes sculptures. I am a sculptor myself, although I sculpt a different type of art, and I have a great appreciation for these masterpieces.
