rustic dreams are made of this

Although we are forever being persuaded to give up our bin collections in favour of recycling, a lack of homeowners actually do it. In England, we are responsible for throwing away hundreds of tons of easily salvageable items because in our worlds, the buy and throw away idea is the best one. This is how stores like Primark boom, with millions of us shopping in store every year, guilty of buying a dress to throw away weeks later.
I'm not saying I'm totally innocent, I'm always buying clothes because they're cheap, wearing them out because I know they didn't cost me much in the first place. However, I know we need to change.
I received a beautiful bracelet from Jewellery Moments last week, called 'rustic earth' (link here) which is made from rolled up pieces of bark, precious gemstones and wood. Alice, who owns the business, creates all of her products by hand, and I find that amazing. Life should be recyclable, and products should be kept for a long time, and this is what I loved about Jewellery Moments. 
The bracelet is hard wearing, I expected some of the bark to look like it was peeling off after a couple of days but it didn't, I've had it for a week now and it's still as pretty as it was when it came out of the (gift wrapped) box.

The bracelet I was gifted cost £12, which I think is a great price for something that would last so long. Alice even took out a bead for me as I have a little wrist (news to me!) and I really felt like I was having the personal treatment. Who does that in Topshop!?
