Jaszy Eco Jewelry Giveaway!

Jaszy’s Jewelry designs are crafted using ethically sourced gemstones & freshwater pearls and accented with recycled metals & Fair Trade components. Hand-crafted by yours truly, every piece is a one-of-a-kind or limited edition.

I design my jewelry to be appealing to Bohemian Chic Fashionistas and women looking for simple, yet elegant, fashionable jewelry accessories. I would describe my designs as hip, eclectic, and often a tad bit “wabi-sabi”. Most of my design inspiration comes from nature, though I am sometimes inspired by a person’s personality. Sometimes I have no idea where the inspiration comes from; it just comes to me as I gaze through an assortment of various colors and gemstones.


Lost & Found Necklace

I began making jewelry in late 2002 after realizing that my life needed a creative outlet. I have always had a love affair with gemstones because my grandfather James planted the seeds of gemstone appreciation when I was young. Jaszy, short for Jasmine, is a memorial to him as I was born on his birthday. Back in 2008 when I my life began to take on a “greener” tint, I endeavored to align my jewelry business with my personal desire to do more in caring and showing appreciation for the planet and its global community. It was at this time that I pledged to lessen my environmental impact by incorporating ethically sourced and eco-conscious materials in my designs.


Some of my materials include:

  • Fair Trade 14k & 24k Vermeil components made by Hill Tribe artisans from Thailand and Indonesia
  • 14k GF components from Israel
  • Ethically sourced gemstones & freshwater pearls
  • 100% recycled Sterling Silver
  • Fair Trade Tagua from Ecuador (responsibly harvested South American fruit seeds from palm trees)

Though my jewelry has been featured in several boutiques and galleries around SW Florida, San Francisco, and Japan, the economy has not been kind, plus I am finding it difficult to maintain dual personalities of jewelry designer and Modern Hippie Mag mad scientist. I have scaled back production to a couple lines in two local boutiques and custom wedding jewelry, but in the coming weeks will begin offering some my jewelry for sale through the new Modern Hippie Mag Marketplace.


Recently, I was inspired to design a pair of earrings that I would love to give to one Modern Hippie Mag reader.

"My Valentine" earrings are made with Fair Trade 14k Vermeil, ethically sourced 14k GF “leaf” components, garnet-hued freshwater pearls, and faceted burgundy Rutilated Quartz, these one-of-a-kind earrings are valued at $74.
