Love the earth? Wear ‘green’ jewellery

Love the earth? Wear ‘green’ jewellery

Jewellery is a matter of personal taste, of his or her own choice. There is a huge collection of eco-friendly jewellery designs from recycled, repurposed and vintage items of jewellery. There are a lot of eco friendly jewellery designs which are an irresistible blend of functions and style and some recycled pieces which will get one to wonder as to how are they made . For example, one can wear rings or earrings and necklaces made of grass. They look pretty and are as eco friendly as you can get. Handmade rings made of grass brings nature close to man! What is quaint about this kind of jewellery is that it needs to be watered occasionally to prevent it from dying.

Jewellery for the neck can also be eco-friendly – your pendants and necklaces can be made of grass, mud, baked earth, clay etc. Be a friend of terracotta if you want to go green. Trending now are tiny stone moss pendants which are made of soft clay and have a tiny tuft of faux moss peeking out from them.

And if you are a die-hard environmentalist, you could wear jewellery made from parrot droppings! Jewellery known as the parrot poop pendant is a rage with those who are keen about preserving the earth and this kind of jewellery needs no water nor sunlight. There are also pendants available that are made from rescued and recycled wooden furniture, while others are made from soda and water bottles and some are painted on shells

For environmentally conscious people with a sweet tooth there are earrings made from ice-cream containers, cut and shaped in the form of leaves and circles. Some are made from stainless steel screws, hoop shaped earrings are made from recycled glass and you can even fashion jewellery out of a toothbrush if you know how. For the brave, there are even earrings made from fully dried,non-smelly, moose droppings.

Bracelets are an adornment that can easily brighten up a wardrobe and you can go green with these too. The stunning berry coil bracelet is fashioned from any berries that you might find and dry, they are then strung on another coil of similar berries perhaps to make an interesting bracelet.

So get your hands on some of these green jewellery to save depletion of the environment and look cool and fashionable whilst you are at it!
