I'm in the process of starting a completely green jewelry business, but I'm having trouble finding places that have the kind of materials I want to work with.  I'm particularly having trouble finding bulk metal jewelry chain that is environmentally friendly.  Ideally I would like to find metal chain that is made from recycled metals.  I'd also like to know that the company producing the chain is an ethical business (treats and pays workers fairly, good working conditions).  I've done a bit of searching around the web and haven't come up with a lot.  And with the sources I have found, I can't find/don't know how to find out what their business practices are.  Any help would be much appreciated!

You could try emailing the people at http://theringlord.com/cart/
Or at http://www.candtdesigns.com/cart.php
Or you could post in TheRingLord's forum to see what you can find.  I'm sure someone will be able to help.

I would go to your local metal recycling plant and see what they can tell you- who they send it off to, etc.  If you work in wire wrapping, you can check out your local "junkyard".  Often they sell things there.  Computers have lots of wire if you are willing to strip the plastic. 

It wouldn't be "recycled" there, and wouldn't take working conditions into consideration, but would be greener, because it would be repurposed instead of having to be processed again.

Just a couple pennies tossed from over here Smiley

Finding jewellery made from recycled material is a very difficult process. How can a metal jewelry be made through recycling. If it does then it would be too costly.
