Eco jewelry - What is it? The best!

Eco friendly, (also environmentally friendly, nature friendly, and green) are synonyms used to refer to goods and services considered to inflict minimal or no harm on the environment.

Re-purposed, up-cycled, recycled jewelry are also terms that closely related to eco "ecological" jewelry.

Eco Jewelry

Sea glass jewelry fits all of these description in a different and charmingway, performing a unique part in this effort to promote a cleaner, greener earth - taking what is basically consumer trash and turning it into attractive wearable art.

This is far different from jewelry made from manufactured or mined goods.

The costs to the earth of mining diamonds, as just one example, is tremendous.

Eco Friendly Jewelry

Of course, we can't shop or buy our way to global sustainability. However, wherever possible, it is a pleasure to feel we are doing our part to help the environment.

Eco and Recycled Jewelry

Eco friendly jewelry or green jewelry appeals to consumers who are becoming more aware of the need to protect the environment. And those of us who spend a lot of time outdoors on the shores of lakes and oceans really know first-hand the effects that mass-produced consumer goods can have on the ecology.

On the other hand, fine jewelry is not going to go away. It has been a part of every known culture in man's history on this planet.

However, we can each feel good (and look good) while changing the origin of at least part of the jewelry we wear – in other words, wearing eco jewelry; environmentally friendly, "green" jewelry.

"For me, I guess the most incredible thing with using sea glass for repurposed or upcycled jewelry is the fact that nature has taken man's junk and converted it into something so beautiful, something that even man has a hard time duplicating. 

"I get a kick out of thinking that nature has gotten a one-up on man for a change. Makes you wonder if man would just stop mucking up the environment what nature could do if let alone.

"Even though jewelry is small when you compare it to some of the beautiful sculptures, wall hangings, et cetera, that other artists are creating with "found" junk, I kind of feel like at least we've made a very small contribution in being "green" in recycling sea glass."
