At Ija Designs green is more than just their favorite color; itís a way of life. They've chosen to run their studio on 100% renewable energy, they recycle all our scrap metal and purchase recycled metals. Recognizing that the jewelry industry as a whole is damaging to the environment, they strive to create as little an impact as possible. They truly believe that beauty radiates from within, but a fabulous pair of earrings canít hurt! We couldn't agree more!
