They say you are what you eat. However, I think it should also should be noted that you are what you wear. In my humble opinion, nothing says more about a person than their personal style. It is one of the few choices we have in our lives that really speaks to who we are and how we see ourselves. Granted, style is fluid. It is also subject to context, but for the most part, how we adorn ourselves directly reflects who we are. We show our beauty, our love, our hearts all through the styles we choose. (Except for that dark period known as the early 1990′s. None of us should be held accountable for that.) On that note, it’s so exciting when we find designers that put just as much energy into sustainability as aesthetics.
ReStrung Jewelry is the fusion of designer Naomi Celestin’s biggest passions: art, music, and philanthropy. Inspired by the sight of her musician boyfriend’s guitar strings hanging on the wall, she started creating jewelry out of them. Realizing she had a never-ending well to draw from (with the broken strings of all of her musician friends) she found a way to create art out of an unrecyclable material. Using vintage gems and stones, Celestin has created a truly eco-friendly line of beauty. These Hot Coral numbers are amazing. And, to top it off, Celestin donates proceeds to philanthropic organizations and continues to give back to the community (all while adorning it!) ReStrung Jewelry is the epitome of doing good while looking good.
