(NaturalNews) Archeological digs dating back many thousands of years prove the fact that jewelry has always been a desired part of human existence, from the rich and powerful to the average worker on the street. Man or woman, old or young, people like to adorn themselves with beautiful accessories. Unfortunately however, these days, most jewelry comes from a very sad and scary unconscious place. Many pieces of jewelry begin with precious metals and gems that are a part of warfare and bloodshed, and others are cultivated from fragile ecosystems, thus damaging the environment. Wouldn't you like to know where your jewelry is coming from and to take comfort in knowing that there has been no violence, bloodshed or environmental destruction from the beautiful piece that hangs around you neck?

For many people, living "environmentally conscious" has become a part of life. For those that are making an effort to be aware of sustainable resources, fashionable jewelry that is repurposed and "green" is a growing trend. Eco-friendly jewelry is made from materials which are from both recycled and renewable resources. Materials can come from old jewelry, from nature, such as recycled coconut and seashells, or recycled materials from any piece of junk that you can think of. Imagination is the only limitation regarding materials and design.

By purchasing and wearing eco-friendly jewelry, you are not only wearing beautiful art but also serving a purpose. Eco-friendly jewelry is an expression of your own eco-consciousness. It is the desire to conserve, the desire to be connected to the protection of the earth and the desire to make a difference. Jewelry made from things that are already in existence decreases the need to further damage the planet. So when you are getting ready to purchase a piece of jewelry, think about where it comes from and how it was made. Remember, the energy that is put into that piece is what you are wearing on your skin.

There are many eco-friendly jewelry designers to choose from nowadays that are inspired by nature and use materials that would most likely have ended up in a landfill had they not been repurposed into jewelry. Alkemie Jewelry, headed by husband and wife design team Ashley Lowengrub and Dara Gerson, is a perfect example. Their entire jewelry line is a unique reflection of Mother Nature and made and sourced from 100% reclaimed metals.
