I love supporting brands that do good with their dollars and when I learned about jewelry that gives back to the environment, I wanted to share it with you. If I’m going to add something to my wardrobe or purchase a gift, I feel better when I know that my purchase means something. Thank you to Schneblies for sponsoring this conversation today.
Schneblies Frogs: Jewelry That Gives Back
It all started at summer camp on Cape Cod when Susie Sheftel was a young girl. In the woods, by the lake—that’s where her fascination with those little hoppy toads began. Many years later, on a hot, summer afternoon in the high desert, she painted a frog on a river rock. As an aspiring artist she felt a strange connection to this new creation. What was she making? Could this charm serve as a reminder to all that we share this earth with other living creatures?
She dabbled with her frog drawings for months –until she had amassed a substantial collection of painted frogs as display art. She was offered space in a local gallery and the frogs hopped off the gallery walls at an unexpected rate. Schneblie® was born. Susie had struck a nerve with a simple frog and began to develop other frog creations including jewelry. This jewelry and art, reminiscent of early cave drawings has evolved into a symbol for environmental action. Schneblie® is one-of-a-kind representation of a simple and loved creature that also comes with a reminder to protect our fragile environment.
I received a beautiful Small Brass Schneblie Pendant, and I am in love with it (him?). I think I am going to name him George. This little mini Schneblie arrived on a 18″ black rubber cord which is absolutely perfect since I tend to have allergies to most metals. I just love the attention to detail and how delicate the Schneblie frog is and that it’s very easy to wear with a variety of different outfits. It looks perfect with a casual pair of jeans and a t-shirt or with a pair of capris and a fancier top.
