EL and Jezella combine their talents - EL is an eco-fashion consultant and Jez is an artist - to create eye-catching jewelry that has minimal effect on the environment, but makes a splash as a fashion statement.
The vibrant designs celebrate nature and relate to environmental challenges. A portion of the proceeds of each pair sold goes to conservation projects around the world... polar bears, water preservation, and improving bee habitats to name a few.

Perhaps you've heard of 60's British fashion siren, Twiggy? She would have been right at home on magazine pages modeling these op art-inspired lovelies.
Jez and EL use high quality, responsibly sourced paper, non-toxic glue, and sterling silver to make the earrings. Nearly every component can be recycled - although I can't imagine turning in the sample earrings they sent to me. I expect they will look great for a long time to come!
If you happen to be in Oxford stop by the OxFork Cafe to see a window Jez and EL collaborated on that features colorful, origami-inspired birds - wearing earrings, of course!
