Environmental awareness is at an all time high. People all around the world want to do their part to lessen their negative impact on the earth. From recycling, to reusing, to using biodegradable products, the number of things you can do to help the earth is incalculable.
There are many ways that jewelry can be eco-friendly. Paper quilled jewelry is eco friendly because:
- It is biodegradable (even if you use a sealant as most sealants will eventually biodegrade. But not if is is dipped in resin).
- It can be made from recycled or upcycled paper (if the maker cuts their own strips. I personally don’t do this, but am thinking of making a collection of those as well!)
- The products used are non toxic (as long as you use a non toxic sealant, which many are. If you use a nail polish varnish it is not non-toxic. I use only water based non toxic sealants for my jewelry).
- It is made of paper which is a renewable resource.
I love creating eco friendly paper quilled jewelry for weddings. I can even create custom designs to match a special wedding gown or bridesmaid dresses! Here are some of the pieces in my wedding collection:
Those are just a few of the specific wedding earrings I have in my etsy shop. I can also do custom designs, and any of my other designs can be made in custom colors. Contact me any time for the jewelry you want for your special day!
