Truly Brilliant Jewelry

I’m a girl who likes her jewelry—and I’m sure I get it from my grandfather, who liked to buy my grandmother diamonds. She wore them well, and I liked to try on her rings whenever they visited. Then they bought me my first dainty diamond ring when I was a teen—it was the beginning of a collection of sparkly baubles, big and small.

Greening of a Fave Fashion Line

When I get complimented on something I’m wearing that’s made of organic cotton or bamboo, I get a big kick out of boasting, “It’s organic!” But only a few years ago, it wasn’t so easy. When deciding to green my life, it was easiest to start with home products (replacing toxic products like Windex and Fantastic with natural ones by Seventh Generation and Method). Then I focused on finding suitable substitutes for beauty products (out with Chanel, in with Dr. Hauschka). My closet? Not so fast. I was pretty attached to my favorite lines and was reluctant to sacrifice my style.
