Featuring two hand formed open wire leaves with delicate chain, it is designed to mimic the look of a lariat, but has one of my signature, handmade clasps at the back so you don't have to worry about it slipping off the way lariats sometimes do! A perfect for the nature lover in your life, because 100% of the profits for this elegant, leafy necklace go to help reduce greenhouse gas in the Earth's atmosphere and help slow the effects of global climate change, while also protecting wildlife, tropical economies, and biodiversity. (Donations are going to The Coalition For Rainforest Nations. (Read more about them below))

All Rebecca Haas Jewelry is handcrafted by me in my Southern Vermont Studio from recycled and ethically sourced materials.
A bit about why I chose The Coalition for Rainforest Nations:
from their site: "The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN or the ‘Coalition) assists tropical governments, communities and peoples responsibly manage their rainforests. Healthy rainforests protect against a changing climate, generate needed biodiversity and provide safe habitats." "Forest conservation and restoration is one of the most cost-effective measures available for mitigating climate change."
Coalition For Rainforest Nations is also ranked #1 by Vox to give the most bang for your buck in terms of donations to mitigate the effects of global climate change:
From Vox: "A donation of just 12 cents to the Coalition of Rainforest nations will avert approximately a metric ton of CO2. . . This means that if you donate $100, you can avert around 857 metric tons of CO2. . . For comparison, the average American causes around 16 metric tons of emissions per year."
