Among the precious heirlooms that I cherish are a gold choker from Grandma Fran and my mother’s wedding ring. It’s always an occasion made more special when I wear these prized pieces.
Many jewelry designers are choosing to craft with eco gold and other precious and not so precious materials, often giving new life or purpose to an element.Choosing eco-friendly gold jewelry—and other precious metals like silver and platinum—helps you avoid one of the world's most eco-unfriendly activities: gold mining. This "green gold" can be completely recycled or newly mined under strict environmental regulations.
If you are in New York April 12th – 13th, check out GOLD: Vision, Value and Values conference showcasing contemporary artists who make art and jewelry with gold, as well as historical work and techniques. They’ll address the challenges and opportunities faced by artists and innovative approaches to minimize mining’s ecological footprint and social impact, sustainability and fair trade.
Speakers include jewelers Temple St. Clair, Heather Moore, Monica Rich Kosann, Rebecca Koven, George Sawyer, and Toby Pomeroy, George Harlow, curator of Minerals and Gems, American Museum of Natural History and Jennifer Krill, executive director, Earthworks.

Lavender oil and lotion are soothing on my sunburns as well, and their scents have helped me sleep countless nights when any slight motion made me aware of my reddened skin.

I love maps. I love examining them and finding various routes to different locations. I would much rather use a map than a GPS, even though a GPS is much more convenient.
What I love even more is finding maps that are made from different materials or that serve many different functions.
