I’m not sure what I love more about eco jewelry designer, Irma Guzman — the fact that her designs are affordable, unique, and eco-gorgeous… or that her Lookbooks are simple enough to help even the most fashion-challenged woman look like a green style goddess.
Over the next three months, we’re partnering with Irma to highlight the different natural elements she brings into her designs. There’s just something about this jewelry that makes you happy. Some of her pieces are funky, while others are elegant. We couldn’t be more thrilled that she has chosen Green Gifts Guide as the platform to share her passion and inspiration.
This month, we’re taking a look at Irma’s pumpkin seed necklaces. These happen to be her customers’ favorites, and it’s easy to see why. Part of Irma’s mission is, “turning nuts and seeds into fashion forward jewelry.”
You might think eco jewelry is only for laid-back occasions, informal events, or looks best with boho-style clothing. Irma wants to change that misconception, saying, “our pieces can be worn in any occasion because of their versatility, you only have to change the outfit.”
But she’s doing more than just telling you to change the outfit, she’s showing you how…
Irma is always helping her fans on Facebook with style tips and feedback on looks they love. And her ever-growing collection of Lookbooks take all the guesswork out of how to wear eco jewelry. When it comes to style and versatility, these three styles top our list of eco friendly jewelry gift ideas:
Cafe Latte is a gorgeous piece made up of hundreds of authentic Colombian coffee beans and pumpkin seeds. This necklace is a tribute to Irma’s native country Colombia, South America, that produces the best coffee in the world. Colombia takes this position seriously and works very hard to maintain a high standard of excellence.
The result is not only a lovely necklace for you, but that you’re supporting thousands of small family coffee farms across the country.
A design of utmost delicacy, Aloha can be worn long or wrapped around your neck once, for a glamorous touch. This piece stands out with confidence, whether displayed in full view or glancing from beneath a jacket. As always, check the Lookbook for more ideas.
Athena is also an elegant piece made with pumpkin seeds and acai seeds in a beautiful combination of mustard and brown. Irma named this piece after the the Greek goddess of wisdom, the arts, industry, justice and skill.
All of the seeds, nuts, and beans come from Colombia and are harvested and dyed with natural oils and procedures by our skilled artisans in Colombia, and the pieces are made in the company’s atelier in Rockwall, Texas, to ensure high quality and the least amount of material wasted.
