Boutique Jewelry hits an Upcycle in Colorado
Newsflash! Boutique Jewelry is hitting stride in Colorado. And in true Colorado fashion designers are captivated by the conscientious craft of upcycling or resourcing to make what was old, new again. These items no longer fit the flea market or craft fair forms that your grandma used to make. Think instead of the designer trends hitting both coasts, BUT with more eco-conscious flare. From used bike parts, hand-me-down clothes and scrap leather, to left over pieces in a indiscriminate range of textile facilities, the Rocky Mountain region is pulling ahead to display the best of the best in designer upcycled products. It seems only appropriate in this climate of change and in the spirit of paying forward to the local creative movement that MegaFauna introduce these shining stars in Colorado boutique jewelry & accessories.
