We are happy to have Stacy Sevelin on the blog today! Stacy Sevelin is originally from Los Angeles. She started making sustainable jewelry upon her arrival to Colorado back in May, 2008. Besides making jewelry, She loves to travel, cook, go to concerts, write poetry, and play the guitar. She makes beaded jewelry (earrings, necklaces, bracelets, wire-wrapped rings, etc.) To make her art sustainable, she tries to reuse materials as much as possible. Many of her materials have been used previously in different types of jewelry, art, and clothing.
Come visit Stacy and see her jewelry at the Earth Day Market on Sunday, April 27th from 11-5pm in Old Town Square.
Stacy’s Earth Day Tips:
Reuse what you can as much as possible. I feel as Americans, we waste so much and much of the things we buy brand new could have been made from what we already own.
Another tip I find important is using natural agents as cleaning materials in our homes. I use a 50/50 mix of hydrogen peroxide and water with a few drops of essential oil as an all purpose cleaner. For a wonderful shampoo, combine one tablespoon of baking soda to one cup of warm water. For a great conditioner, use two tablespoons of distilled vinegar to one cup of warm water. It’s better for our earth, ourselves, our families, and our friends!
