Wyland Foundation Jewels Made with Recycled Metals and Stones to Benefit Healthy Oceans

The Giving Coast

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY DEC 2, 2020

Founded by renowned marine life artist and conservationist Wyland, the widely-recognized Wyland Galleries' 501c3 non-profit organization, Wyland Foundation, continues to inspire lifelong stewardship of the planet's waters. From oceans and lakes to rivers, streams and wetlands, the foundation designs and creates pieces of art through science, research and community engagement programs. For the holidays, Wyland Foundation recently launched a line of sustainable jewels of aquatic-themed pieces in gold, platinum and silver. Free of lead and nickel, each piece of marine animal-inspired jewelry is hand-crafted in So-Cal and made with recycled metal and natural stones. 

All proceeds directly support the Wyland Foundation's annual education campaigns for clean water and healthy oceans. The goal is to bring attention to water quality, availability, and the importance of safe, reliable water distribution systems which have become issues of national interest in recent years. Thousands participate every year and participants have pledged to save billions of gallons of water in addition to practicing greener lifestyles.

Shop the collection here or at Wyland Gallery, 314 John Ringling Blvd. Sarasota, 941-388-5331.
