The artists of these original designs were inspired by visits to nature centers, wildlife refuges, parks, gardens, and other interesting places. The mismatched pairs have been a staple of Jabebo’s designs from the beginning. Each pair has been created with fun, nature, and education in mind. Let these Eco-friendly works of art remind you of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge every time you wear them.

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.

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird: With wings that can beat 50 times a second and an acrobatic flying style that includes hovering, flying upside down and backward, you’ll have to be quick to spot these speedy little birds. Weighing in at just an eighth of an ounce, adult ruby-throated hummingbirds may eat twice its body weight in food every day to sustain its rapid wing beat and energetic movements.
