We don’t mind be the ones to point the finger, as long as it’s donning an adornment that’s as eco-minded as it is eye-catching. Hence our intrigue with Bay Area jewelry company J. Fein Designs and its ring collection featuring sustainably-harvested wood and recycled embellishments.
Designer Jessica Feinsmith uses vintage jewelry pieces, antique buttons, cameos and other reclaimed findings to create visual interest atop hand-carved sono wood settings that can be worn on any finger. Rings topped with metal flowers balance antique sensibilities with modern earthiness, while blinged out versions satisfy those with a need for sparkle and others topped with butterflies or cameos add a lighthearted pop of color.
You’ll find seemingly endless variety in the online shop, where prices for these eco-friendly accessories start at $30.
