The artists of each original design were inspired by visits to nature centers, wildlife refuges, parks, gardens, all kinds of interesting locations. The mismatched pairs have been a staple of Jabebo’s designs from the beginning. Each design has been created with fun, nature, and education in mind. Take your special experience at the Refuge home with you and remember it whenever you wear these eco-friendly works of art.
Each pair of earrings as well as the card they come on are created mostly from post-consumer paperboard cereal boxes. The studio sometimes goes through 60 boxes a week. That’s a lot of cereal! Thankfully, they don’t have to eat it all themselves. The generous community of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, where the studio is located, donates most of the boxes that are used.
