Free the Bird Recycled Necklace

I love accessorizing with necklaces. I have a substantial collection of necklaces for every occasion. When my neck is bare I feel naked! I am the go-to-girl for neck accessorizing.

I also like products I can feel good about. We’ve featured numerous HC Approved! blogs about going green.

When I saw Green Envy’s Free the Bird necklace I instantly liked it. I really love nature inspired necklaces because I find them to be the easiest to work into an outfit. I have an acorn necklace I am beyond obsessed with, as well as a maple leaf necklace that I wear with so many different things! I had actually been looking for a bird necklace and this one seemed to fit the bill.

A huge bonus with this necklace is that it’s made from recycled metal. As an avid recycler (just ask my lovely college apartment-mates who so nicely put up with my need to recycle everything), this necklace was calling out at me (no pun intended).

I was actually surprised that the necklace wasn’t long. I never pay attention to chain lengths so the length (16.5 inches) meant nothing to me. At first I was kind of irked by the short length and considered finding some sort of chain extender. Then I tried it on at the shortest length and it actually looked really good. Plus I got a ton of compliments on it.

I found that the bird — which I worried would kind of overpower my neck and be too heavy and large — actually felt pretty light and was the perfect size to go with scoop-esque neck shirts and dresses.

Overall I loved it! I love the delicate stone next to the bird, and the assymetrical double strand on one side! And the bird is just gorgeous, but again not too obnoxious.
