make a pledge to avoid the purchase and demand of coral with SeaWeb's Too Precious To Wear, an organization to help bring awareness of the importance this organism has to our environment. Many artists and designers around the world are asking questions about the source of their coral, most refusing to use it at all. Vintage coral is also an excellent option - something I opt to when I purchase a jewelry piece or beading supply. Temple even has her own plans to pay homage to this beautiful sealife in her spring collection through the use of gold, sapphire and diamonds.

Make the pledge today and help preserve this beautiful organism, and let's keep what's left where it belongs. Enjoy an Etsy Treasury I've put together full of 'ocean friendly' coral inspirations!
