With nominations for Colin Firth’s work in “The King’s Speech” continuing to roll in (as well as the accolades that predictably follow), Livia Firth has stayed busy prepping the next sustainable/ethical outfit to wear down the red carpet. She’s also hooked up with Made, designers of unique fair trade jewelery, to create a Valentine’s Day necklace to be worn as a choker with the chain and heart tumbling down the spine.

“I love everything about Made: the country where they produce their products, the community project they’ve set up, the sustainable materials they use to create their collections and the “trade not aid” ethos of the company,” Firth writes in a release. “The design of this necklace combines a desire to be feminine with a twist of mischief, to tease with elegance. Who could resist the tingling feeling of the heart as it cascades down your spine?”

Materials for the necklace are sustainable and locally sourced. Recycled brass is used for the chain and the soapstone used for the heart pendent is mined locally through a co-operatively run mine that provides jobs and a better standard of living.

Interested? You can pick one up for just over $100 here.
