Camille says: I collected the leaf in a nearby park, the bark from the Sierras, and the plastic was cut from a recycled plastic milk jug. The leaf, bark and plastic were all dipped in resin, sanded and drilled by hand. Then I attach them using brass jump rings and chain.
This necklace made from found objects was created for my line called Recharte Jewelry. Recharte refers to re-charting our course as a society. I believe that because we create our social world by collectively defining it, the way to improve is to redefine. I hope when people wear Recharte Jewelry they will be reminded of their ability to redefine our world, and plot our course toward something better.
Resin, eucalyptus leaf, bark from a Jeffery pine and clear milk dot bead created from recycled milk cartons all strung together on antiqued brass chain
