Eco Friendly Jewelry from One Loom Studio Now Featured at Green Bride Guide Wedding Shop

 

One Loom Studio is dedicated to providing couples with the most innovative, ethical, and exciting green jewelry for their weddings. We are pleased to announce our new relationship with the Green Bride Guide.

The Green Bride Guide website http://www.greenbrideguide.com was launched in 2009 by environmental lawyer Kate Harrison after her book, The Green Bride Guide, How to Create an Earth- Friendly Wedding on Any Budget, became a best-seller in the wedding category (Sourcebooks, 2008). The Green Wedding Shop, which launched on Earth Day 2012, is the most popular eco-wedding destination in the country and features hundreds of sustainable wedding day items, including handmade favors, recycled paper invitations, and eco-couture gowns and accessories. Each product features a detailed description of what makes it green.

One Loom Studio was created in 2009 by artist and designer Jessica Farber-Robinson, who studied at the Rhode Island School of Design. She had a clear mission to make eco-friendly jewelry that was both beautiful, and affordable for brides and grooms everywhere. Her work uses recycled silver and her own sustainably grown plants to create a line of unique nature inspired jewelry.

We are thrilled about our new collaboration with One Loom Studio. With 2.5 million weddings a year in the United States, every choice makes a difference. When brides buy One Loom Studio’s products, they decrease the impact of their wedding on the planet and help support the green economy,” said Kate Harrison, Founder and CEO of Green Bride Guide.
