Wearing nature

By Alejandro, First2Print

Botanical designer, Jessica Viola has designed  marvelous jewelry collections based on sustainability.  Her designs are handmade and use natural fibers , rare and inspiring gems, recycled metals and organically grown species of air plants.

They are all the perfect statement jewelry pieces that I think would have the power to transform our environmental consciousness.
