Celtic Knot Pendant from Vintage Spoon

I like turn old silverware into modern pieces of jewelry. Each silverware I find in the thrift shop or on the flee market is unique, so it means each piece of jewelry is unique. When I see a piece of silverware, I don't just see a tool to eat with. I look at it and imagine the fine spoon bracelet, pendant, or earrings that it may become. This is a jewelry with history.

Eco jewelry

Is there such a thing as eco-friendly jewelry?

Any industrial jewelry mining can have numerous harmful negative impacts on the environment, ranging from erosion of the land, to leakage of harmful chemicals into the water supply, to the alteration of an entire ecosystem. And let’s not forget about the carbon footprint of the heavy machinery that’s used in the process. So yes, there most definitely is such a thing as eco-friendly jewelry — that is, any jewelry that was mined with the least possible negative impact on the environment, or not mined at all.
