Sustainably Chic

An 'Eco' Cut Above the Rest

FashionNatalie Kay


An earth-friendly jewelry line, Pimelia is making Birch plywood fancier than ever. The use of shape, color and material is a true eco win in my book. Artist & 'green' advocate, Leah Sawyer knew in order to create a truly sustainable jewelry line she would need to choose her mediums wisely. While upcycling is a wonderful way to go green in the jewelry industry, using someone's repurposed work can limit an artist. Luckily, Leah was able to keep her creative juices flowing when she stumbled upon a local Lasercutter. Her possibilities were now endless with this 100% green power machine, and her designs have become lovelier each day! As with all sustainable businesses, Leah understands there is always room for improvement and is actively seeking new ways to make her business 'greener' everyday. I have thoroughly valued and enjoyed my Pimelia pieces, so I'm very excited to share this new find with you! Click below to see all the pretties.. 

Pimelia features extravagant lasercut jewelry made from sustainably harvested, high grade Birch plywood, which is handpainted and finished off with dainty reclaimed vintage beads. The details are absolutely stunning, and you can get lost in the patterns. Even the chains and findings are eco-inspired with the use of raw brass made from recycled metals which are 100% recyclable. Plus, it doesn't just stop at the physical product, Pimelia uses recycled, natural and upcycled packaging and creates beautiful swing tags made from 100% recycled card stock {they match their jewelry friends!}. 

While these pieces are incredibly light, they are extremely well made and flawless. The LYRA necklace is my absolute favorite with its light blue vintage teardrop bead and gold finishing - the color combination is very romantic and feminine! The THALASSA necklace reminds me of a fancy fan, and the paynes grey color has been able to fit into my wardrobe perfectly. Love the earrings pictured below?
