My air necklace is now available through ethicalcommunity.com . I will continue to add more jewelry over the next few months.

“Wear air in support of lung cancer research”
We all need air to breathe and to live. I have seen first hand the struggle of not getting enough air into your lungs anymore. The concept is graphic, clean and creates a nice balance between the simply graphic type and the organic shape and material of the beach glass. The square air pendant is handmade from recycled .999 fine silver and is combined with a piece of beach glass. Each piece of beach glass is unique and different just like the lives effected by lung cancer.

Each of my fine silver creations is individually sculpted by hand, imprinted, sanded, fired and polished creating a one-of-a-kind piece. The fine silver used is made from 100% recycled silver, reclaimed from photographic and x-ray materials and combined with water and a non-toxic binder. Through the firing process the clay binder and water are burned off and a strong, sparkling and eco-friendly piece of jewelry emerges. All silver scraps, shavings and dust are collected and reused to help save our planet.

100% of the profit is donated to lung cancer research.

Happy Earth Day

What a wonderful idea Earth Day is! It inspires awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.

If you know me, you are probably aware that I am a bit of a hippie and I mean that in a good way. Since I was a little girl living in Switzerland I always wanted to protect animals from extinction and I always appreciated the beauty of nature all around me. I recycled from a very early age on and I was known to give little lectures to other people if they weren’t doing the same thing. That’s the beauty of children. They tell you what they think and they are so idealistic. I have stopped lecturing people and have learned that I can better lead by example. I try my best to reduce my ecological footprint in a way that is sustainable in itself. I try hard to incorporate this philosophy into my creative process and live by my tagline “recycle. reuse. recreate.” Each of us can make a difference and we can inspire people around us to do the same.

Please be nice to mother earth!

Ciao

beauty is all around you
