An Organic Jewelry Gift

A lot of my friends are into the green lifestyle, bringing their reusable shopping bags to the store and carrying stainless steel water bottles instead of buying plastic and throwing it away. Now people are starting to look past these little changes to incorporate the “green attitude” in all aspects of their lives, especially fashion. Organic cotton and recycled materials are popping up in designer stores, and even Organic Jewelry has become trendy. These natural Gourd Earrings from Peru are not only made with a renewable resource, but they’re also sold by a fair trade-friendly company. Real gourd is used in many Peruvian Jewelry designs, and is hand carved by talented artisans using traditional techniques. The gourd is set in sterling silver, making them an impressive gift for any eco-friendly fashionista!
