grass and wood ring

I’m pretty sure some of you may not be aware that fresh moss and grass can be added as nice enhancements to handmade jewelry. Mr. Lentz on Etsy incorporates these fresh touches as well as upcycled sustainably-sourced materials to some of his original pieces. Amazingly, he also creates his own dyes from vegetable matter. And for shipping materials, he uses 100% recycled products, to save those trees we all care about.

In the shop, the prices range from $38 to $120 for the moss jewelry products and his leather products range from $16 to $250. I focus on the moss jewelry because it is something unique and can showcase our love of  being “green.” The rings also give you a neat alternative to the diamond engagement rings if you know your significant other will appreciate something like this. The jewelry uses all natural moss and grass that has been dried and preserved to last a long time and you won’t have to water or maintain it in any way. The wood used is hand carved from walnut board and finished with non-toxic extra virgin olive oil.

Everything in his shop is made from pure, natural ingredients like stains made from plant extracts, finishes from beeswax and olive oils, as well as sustainably harvested wood. Check it all out, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Visit his shop at the MrLentz Etsy shop.
