I’m not really into New Year’s resolutions, but this year I did decide to make a greater commitment to using eco-friendly material in my jewelry. To this end, I’ve started buying most of my sterling silver from Hoover & Strong, a company that has been providing eco-friendly, recycled precious metals to jewelers for decades. While I do still have a lot of material from other suppliers on hand, I will be restocking these with their more environmentally-friendly counterparts as they run out. I am already using the recycled silver in many of my pieces, including my Constellation Earrings, Galaxy Ring, Skyline Earrings, and several other items. I’m happy with how the silver looks, and I feel good about using something that is a little less harmful to the planet.
In other news, I’ve finally gotten around to updating my shop at Big Cartel. I like the different formatting options there, as well as the reasonable monthly fee. Click HERE to take a look at the whole shop!
