Born and raised in Mexico City, Monica Ruzansky now lives in Brooklyn where she works as creative director/designer of Aili Jewelry, creating an expanding collection of handcrafted, eco-friendly accessories and adornments. These Aili Sun Beam Earrings, available via Madesmith, add a lovely dose of sunshine to fall looks. The little sterling studs are handcrafted in Monica's Brooklyn studio using recycled silver.
"It is a choice, and for me it is important to protect our environment," Monica says on her decision to use recycled materials. "We have enough information about how wasteful our world has become I feel at this point it's important we all take actions individually, in our homes, in our business, etc., on how to reduce our negative footprint in the world."
Amen to that.
