Earth is an awesome mother, isn’t she? She provides for our every need without us even having to ask. The 22nd of April is the day we honor her, and in celebration of Earth Day, I’ve created a vibrant spring collection of eco-friendly necklaces and silk scarves, made using one of Earth’s precious gifts — leaves.
We think of Fall as the season when trees lose their leaves, but some trees shed leaves in the spring, as they’re getting new growth. Right now I’m working with Fernleaf Ironwood, Ironbark Eucalyptus, Loquat, Silk Oak, Bauhania and London Plane leaves.
You will look stunning wearing these elegant one-of-a-kind objets d’art. They’re unique, they’re beautiful, they’re eco-friendly, and they’re art!
My one-of-a-kind leaf print necklaces are created from original ecoprints made by pressing and steaming leaves against watercolor paper. No inks, dyes or paints are used — just the colors and patterns from the plants themselves. No two pieces are alike.
The leaf print scarves use the same press-and-steam process, and the colors and patterns of the leaves transfer to the silk. The color is permanent, and the scarves can be hand washed in mild soap.
These 50-inch scarves are the perfect length to add a touch of color and style to your warmer weather wardrobe. They’re available in sheer chiffon, shiny lightweight habotai, and matte crepe de chine. Pair with a leaf print necklace for a complete eco-friendly look!
