Since Ornatha was found, we have never used any material and/or product from the nature. More, we encourage others to do the same.
We don't agree in destroying the nature or practice animals cruelty to make, sell or wear beautiful pieces of jewelry.
"A piece of jewelry can certainly be stunning with beautiful and good quality animal imitation material."
Alice Maria Frittoli
Ivory is one of the most beautiful materials to make a jewelry, or to be added on it for me. Because it's not totally white, it gives lightness to a piece producing a special effect easily perceived by a person.
Due to that beauty, the elephants have paid an expensive price for "carrying "this beauty" in his tusks. Only about 415,000 African elephants remain in the wild today, and every year poachers kill at least 20,000.
China made history by banning elephant ivory sales in 2017. We can do our part by not buying products with ivory one them.
There's nothing more beautiful than a fur coat as a piece of clothing. Any kind of them. The spotted ones are the most att
ractive for me. I like all spotted animals. However, I have never had a leopard furry coat. I had one from an animal called "Nutria" (it is a kind of a rat, but with stunning mixture of long black/brown shinny fur and short opaque fur. And another one, believe or not, from a beaver, yes ..... a sweet beaver. Both of them were given to me by my mom a long time ago, almost 30 years.
When I decided that I would not wear animals fur, my mom and I had an argument because they were "good and warm", she stated. Besides, both of them had been given to her as a gift by my dad. There was no negotiation at all. And .... I have never wore any fur coat ever since.
The Amur leopard for example, is largely poached for its beautiful, spotted fur. In 1999, an undercover investigation team recovered a female and a male Amur leopard skin, which were being sold for $500 and $1,000 respectively.
Over the past century, tiger numbers have fallen from about 100,000 individuals to just an estimated 3,500.
The illegal trade in tiger parts has led to more than 1,000 wild tigers being killed over the past decade.
