I recently heard about Black Mountain Jewelry Company and not only have fallen in love with their products but also their wonderful philosophy.
Handmade by Mark and Carla Mead, Black Mountain Jewelry Company helps customers celebrate their milestones with gifts of jewelry that honor the special people and times of your life. While their spectacular jewelry is indeed one of a kind, I’m impressed by this little mom and pop company’s commitment to fair trade and environmentally responsible business practices.
Carla and Mark practice fair trade and responsible sourcing while minimizing the impact on our environment and are concerned about their own practices on their local environment. Black Mountain jewelry uses reclaimed and recycled materials and purchases responsibly sourced gems from companies whose mining practices don’t violate human rights. They also give 5% of each sale to Children’s charities.
In honor of Mother’s Day, Black Mountain Jewelry is honoring one lucky Tech Savvy Mama reader with a custom Tree of Life Charm. The Tree of Life jewelry line is made from 100% recycled metals and fair trade gemstones. This collection was designed to help people find strength, feel connected and to celebrate life in a way that becomes possible when you have a tangible talisman, a physical reminder you can touch and be reminded of what touches you.
One reader will receive a Tree of Life Charm made of sterling silver, 14k gold, and semi-precious stones (code TCS1) of their choice. The charm can have up to 5 smaller accent stones to symbolize their children on 18″ sterling snake chain. This meaningful jewelry amulet is semi-custom with a birthstone on the front and custom stamping on the back and has a minimum value of $81.95.

Ponder the gorgeous image and share your thoughts! Carla says that they “have many different customers – mom’s, nurses, survivors- and they share their stories with us. Recently I sent out one to an old dear friend. We put her stone in the roots of the tree and her three children in the branches. She lost one of her children who’s stone we set in the human heart in the branches – because he’s always in her heart.” Isn’t that just beautiful?
