The impact of the ‘going green’ movement

d8de0-treenecklaceI guess the environmentalism movement is influencing art and fashion. Two recurring them9866e-birdes I’ve noticed lately are trees and birds. The desire to be one with nature may have popularized these two images. I’ve seen many handmade products listed on Etsy with both themes.

7fe32-cuffThe $25 “Tree on the Lake” glass necklace above is one example. The seller took the picture herself and created jewelry with it. And this sweet little bird necklace by New Mexico jewelry artist Lauren Tobey of Meltdown Studio costs $88.

Etsy seller Hollyhawk has sold out of this tree-printed cuff bracelet, but she has others.

37bb9-locketThis one-of-a-kind $88 bird necklace made of a recycled locket and wood carving (center) also appears to have been snatched as soon as it was posted, but you can still buy this $55 stainless steel Polli Elm Pendant at Doe.
