To Arm Party
Artisans in developing countries create textiles that form the heart of Color by Amber jewelry. Each unique artisan creation is encased in Ecoresin and made into stunning jewelry that is both timeless and on-trend.
The idea for Color by Amber began when founder Talley Goodson found himself wanting to make a bigger impact with the Full Circle program he had pioneered within his architectural company, 3Form. Through Full Circle he had been able to empower and change the lives of artisans and their communities in countries around the world, and he wanted to do more.
When Talley discovered 3Form could be made into jewelry, he knew this was the way he could make the bigger impact he’d wished for. In 2012 he challenged a hand-picked team of fashion designers to create a jewelry line that honored the traditions of the artisans and appealed to modern style. From there, CBA was born.
Today our products are loved by tens of thousands of women across the United States and Canada, where stories are told and the Full Circle mission continues to empower artisans across the world.
Talley is the passion and enthusiasm that drives the mission of Color by Amber forward. A born entrepreneur, philanthropist, and outdoor enthusiast, you will rarely see Talley standing still. Rather, you'll find him talking innovation with our design team, installing drip irrigation in organic farms in Senegal, or climbing to the summit of Denali with his daughter in Nepal—all actual things we've found him doing!
With an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a degree in Mathematics from Brigham Young University, Talley has been able to build multiple companies and provide a strong business strategy in addition to his passion and drive.
