I love and adore all jewelry and my most favorite designs of the moment lie in the realm of the au natural aesthetic.
I am encouraging a movement toward the purchase of stones, gems and metals that are embracing the essence of sustainability, recycling, or re purposing. The re purposing of found objects, antique gems, older heirloom pieces, broken once loved pieces; these make for the best of the best in jewelry.
Be a harbinger of the new jewelry trend this spring! Mother's Day is coming would it not be great to give Mom a piece of her own jewelry only updated, fixed and finished.
Eileen Fisher, Inc. has awarded a PA based designer of such jewelry a 10K grant as a Women owned business. As soon as we go forward with the press release I will indeed share with you the name of these two great women and provide a web site to view their work.
In the meantime check out Monique Pean her designs are in keeping with this movement toward recycled materials and responsible mining of gem stones.
