Celebrities Take Home ecocessories at the 2010 Leo Awards

I'm proud to announce that recipients of the celebrity gift bags at the Leo Awards 2010, June 4th & 5th, in Vancouver, B.C. will be going home with a piece of ecocessories jewelry.

I felt honoured when Vancouver Eco Fashion Week (VEFW) and the Leo Awards approached ecocessories to include my eco-friendly jewelry designs in the gift bags! I think it is great that the Leo Awards value eco-fashion so much and hope the recipients really enjoy the style and timeless appeal of my unique designs.

The jewelry that the celebrities will be receiving is all hand crafted using sterling silver & recycled beads, sourced from ecocessories’ jewelry recycling service.

It makes sense to me to use recycled beads because having old, broken or unwanted jewelry around is an issue many women can identify with. I feel good about providing this jewelry recycling service, and find inspiration in whatever materials come to me. Each season I choose a colour palette and pair recycled beads with precious metal to create high quality, unique jewelry designs.

Sterling silver components, such as the signature “S” hook clasps, are hand formed, hammered, soldered and wire wrapped for quality and strength. Earrings wires are all hand forged from sterling silver, and hooks include invisible rubber backs.

The Leo Awards asked VEFW for help compiling the gift bags, which will feature a number of products made by eco fashion designers. An annual event, the Leo Awards honors the best in British Columbian television and film production. “Artistic excellence is alive and well in BC,” says Leo Awards president Walter Daroshin, “The film and television industry continues to be a driving force in the economy and creative sector of this Province and our 2010 nominees are testament to that.”

VEFW is a biannual event being launched on September 28, 29, & 30th, 2010 in Vancouver, B.C. "VEFW wants to position Vancouver as the international capital of eco fashion as Paris is to haute couture" says Myriam Laroche, President of VEFW.
