Founder and Creative Director Soraya Cedeno has a very long history of working closely with local and national autism foundations to increase awareness and improve the lives of persons with autism and their families. As a fundraiser, Soraya was (and still is) constantly searching for unique ways to generate donations. This provided an extraordinary opportunity to marry two of her passions: giving back to her village in Ecuador and helping those affected by autism by creating a puzzle piece bracelet from Tagua. Due to the success of the puzzle piece bracelet, Soraya was able to launch Organic Tagua Jewelry and share the beauty and creativity of her people's work with the world. Organic Tagua Jewelry is based in Stuart, FL, and is family owned and operated.
