Keeping it Green at ColbyJune

unnamed

 This year we have decided to donate to a local organization that helps protect the amazing wilderness in our backyard. We spend lots of time hiking and playing in our incredible Colorado landscape, which provides lots of inspiration for our work!

10% off all sales April 21st – 27th will go to the Wilderness Workshop!

The Wilderness Workshop’s mission is to protect and conserve the wilderness and natural resources of the Roaring Fork Watershed, the White River National Forest, and adjacent public lands.

The Wilderness Workshop is a non-profit organization that engages in research, education, legal advocacy and grassroots organizing to protect the ecological integrity of local landscapes and public lands.We focus on the monitoring and conservation of air and water quality, wildlife species and habitat, natural communities and lands of wilderness quality.

Please check out their website to find out more about The Wilderness Workshop or how you can help! We have some exciting Earth Day plans of our own, so make sure to check back and see what we did on Earth Day!!

Natural beauty inspires our work and preservation of the environment is of the highest importance. We are committed to practices that sustain our environment. Here are just a couple environmental friendly steps we take:
  • We use fair trade and sustainably mined gems and beads.
  • We source our materials and outside services as close to home as possible.
  • All Colby June pieces are packaged in boxes that contain up to 70% PCR content
  • Each piece comes in a linen(no-dye) pouch
  • All printed materials are printed at Greenerprinter.com, a certified green business
  • We recycle and buy green products to maintain and operate the studio.

Our 3 picks come from the leaf collection. Fallon is modeling all of the items in our most recent photo shoot collaboration with Le Corte Vintage and Clarissa Schneider of Photo Nectar Photography (photonectar@gmail.com).

1. Gold Multi Leaf Earrings, the perfect thing to dress up any outfit.

2. The Long Leaf Necklace looks amazing by itself, or layer it with your existing necklaces.

3.  The Gold Twig Cuff is nature inspired and will always remain one of my favorite pieces!

 

 

Looking into 2014!

We are finally caught up from the holiday rush! We had an amazing 2013 and are now looking at what’s in store for 2014.  In February, I will be heading to  Tucson for the annual Gem and Mineral Show.  It will be my first time there which is very exciting for me and what it could mean for our next collection.  We are beginning the process of creating a new collection which is always anxiety provoking but the reward and satisfaction of creating a final product is what keeps us doing it over and over.

Above is one of our favorite pictures of Fallon from our winter photo shoot.  She is wearing our silver pebble studs, a Coral Cuff Bracelet, and two of our sale items: the coral bracelet and the sticks ring.
