My name is Sadie Mills, I am a passionate nature lover and from the time I was born to today, I have always had a passion for nature and the beauty that our world has to offer! I have lived in British Columbia my whole life and I have always been an enthusiastic hiker! Being someone that loves to hike, I was constantly picking wildflowers and trying to bring them home, they either turned to nothing by the time I got home or only lasted a couple of days before they were dry and dead. I began researching resin and finding the perfect jewelry grade resins to use and quickly discovered that I could turn the beauty of the mountains, trails and wild forests into a beautifull wearable natural art form for all to enjoy. I have always been concerned with the ecological impacts of the fashion industry, and there has been a huge rise in the purchases of resin jewelry. Sadly these plastic petroleum based resins cannot break down, simply turning into micro plastics throughout our oceans and landfills. I strive to provide a sustainable alternative that uses our natural wonders from Vancouver island.
Ever consider what resin is made out of? It’s plastic. Our resin is 100 percent raw plant based . Our resin is sustainably made from green clippings and even better it is specificially made for jewelry to last forever. Unlike craft resin our jewelry grade resin will not yellow fade or break!
I am happy to ensure that all flowers picked in the wild are picked with purpose and are sustainable sourced. All of the flowers that you can purchase from Where Wild Things Glow are local wildflowers from Vancouver island! I do not pick more than I need. ever!
All of my practices are ethical, from the metals to the chains and resin, my materials are all sourced within British Columbia from other small business owners who use sustainable practices.
80 percent of the flowers I use are native to Vancouver island. With many invasive plants threatening our biodiversity and native plants that make up our diverse natural province, I feel now, more than ever it is important to preserve our native species. With sustainable practices in mind, and the hope that our native species will thrive on for future generations, if they do not I want you to have something that commemorates the beauty of our worlds original story.WEBSITE
