An eco friendly silver ring made out of completely recycled metal.

Imagine a handmade Eco-friendly engagement ring, or maybe just a fun silver ring. Show your concern for the environment in the most stylish of ways!

A sterling silver handmade ring fabricated of completely RECYCLED metal from my bench.

Do you do everything you can to conserve?
Do you choose Green items for your home?
Do you love Recycled and Repurposed?

Me too. That is why I designed the GREEN Ring.

Simple.
Modern.
Fantastic.

The inside of the band can be handstamped or engraved with a name or secret message or date. The possibilities are endless!

With the latest rush in popularity to being "green", I have contemplated how I could incorporate that into my jewelry. It is definitely a part of my life: I recycle, carry my own grocery sacks, reuse, reuse, reuse, and truly place value on the environment. But when it came to jewelry...I was stumped.

One reason I struggled is the fact that most metal is recycled to begin with. So to say I've made a conscience effort to be "green" is really not fair. It needed to be more deliberate, more purposeful.

The result?

Well, let me in on the process first. An item that is in high demand in my Etsy shop as well as the stores I supply jewelry to, are my bangles. They are a set of 5 different wires...soldered into a bangle...hand textured...then wrapped with a band of 14karat gold vermeil. The resulting piece always leaves me with a scraps of wire which I haven't been able to do anything with except send back as scrap to be recycled.

I decided to melt down the small pieces o wire to create an organic "lump" of silver. I LOVED it! The texture, the shape, the sheer weight of it. Next I used the heaviest wire to create a simple band. Bent, soldered, textured...viola'! The mass of silver is attached to the band and there you have it...my "green" ring!

I'm actually very excited because it allows me to reuse and recycle and have something tangible as a result!

So in conclusion....GO GREEN!

Due to the nature of this ring, your "lump" will vary in size and texture to the photo.
