Get an Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift: Sundrop Jewelry Give-a-way

We're thrilled with our newest line of recycled glass line from Sundrop Jewelry.  While Smart Glass offers somewhat more artistic styling, Sundrop is simple and classy with a wonderful story behind it that will have you talking about your earrings to everyone you see.

Sundrop Jewelry makes their unique glass droplets using focused sunshine!  The heat of the sun is focused by a three foot tall magnifying glass (technically a fresnel lens).  Artisans put recycled glass pieces under the concentrated heat and then let gravity form the droplets. 

This creative process is all done right here in the USA in a Minneapolis back yard.  Of course, we love supporting small, eco businesses, so Sunglass Jewelry was an easy choice for us to offer.  Best of all, we're giving away a matching set of earrings and necklace to one lucky winner for the holidays.  There are 4 color options to choose from.

TO ENTER:  Leave a comment on this blog post by Thursday, December 15, with your e-mail address, phone number or some way for us to get in touch with you.  If you don't want to leave contact info, you can comment with your name and then e-mail us your contact info.  If we don't know how to contact you, we can't give you the prize.  The drawing happens December 16th and will ship as soon as we hear back from the winner.

To really appreciate this great line, take a look at this video of a Sundrop being created.

They're beautiful pieces. FaeriesDance is definitely the best eco-friendly web store I've found so far. This set would be a fabulous Christmas gift for myself - with your help of course! :)

As a glassblower myself, I understand the care that goes into making such objects. I, too, use recycled glass when creating my dishware.

Hi Adrienne...you are always coming up with the most beautiful and unusual clothing and jewelry! The sundrop jewelry is exquisite and very fairy-like! I especially love the blue and green colors...to me blue is harmony and green...compassion...colors and feelings of our earthwalk brought to life by the rays of the sun!

Namaste Caitlin
