Wednesday Welcome: Green Earth Jewelry

Each week I'm using Etsy's Pounce feature in order to discover new items "from undiscovered shops waiting for their first sale" as the Etsy site states. This week's welcome is extended to Green Earth Jewelry of Philadelphia. This shop is a perfect choice for an Earth Day feature since this jewelry designer says in her profile "My second love is the environment, which is why I only use recycled metals in my designs now. I purchase my metals from a refiner that never buys metal from mines, meaning they recycle precious metal scrap from jewelers or buy from other refiners who do not buy from mines. I also use fair trade or responsibly mined gemstones when possible." Nice policies and nice jewelry!
