If a tree falls in the forest…can it end up in your wardrobe? That question was asked by Elle magazine and the answer is YES!!! Ten Thousand Things collaborated with designer Marcia Patmos to create a line of sustainable jewelry for her fall 2012 collection using branches, knobs and rings from a tree stored in their Brooklyn warehouse. “Our big motivation has always been to create jewelry that could be considered an heirloom piece, like something valued by your mother or grandmother and passed down through generations. Substantial and classic but original.”
Unfortunately, I could not find a photo of ‘said’ tree, but I did find this FABULOUS necklace of enameled copper charms on a leather cord necklace…A DEFINITE…WE CAN DO THIS PIECE.
