On emotional connection to things... I'm a Native American jewelry artist using stones from left over mining projects and salvaged beads. My work sends a message of connection to the earth and our responsibility to her. There are so many wonderful businesses that have this same concept and it provides balance for people trying to do their part to be green. Buying something new from something old has meaning and the story behind it offers timeless value. Having emotional connection to things makes you think before you buy. Buying recycled when you can, also helps ease the guilt when you just have to have that brand new pair of boots! For me, it's all about balance and awareness. www.getyourrockon.com to recycle your old beads, stones and shells.
