Based in San Diego California, Green Tree Jewelry was founded by Lance Nybye Sr. and his son Lance Nybye Jr. to provide affordable fun jewelry from sustainable resources in the USA. Lance Jr. & Sr. stumbled upon the idea of Green Tree Jewelry after a fire consumed their previous business laser engraving bats. The bat business never made a full comeback after the 2008 fire, so they had to find a way to reinvent them. While attending weekend craft shows and weeknight street fairs, they had the idea of using the equipment they already had from the previous business to make wood laser cut earrings.
Lance Jr., Green Trees designer, is laser focused on the smallest details. His mission is to create products entirely from renewable and recycled materials and he is constantly improving the manufacturing process and product design. His inspiration for all his Green Tree products, including the Blossom Jewelry line that we proudly offer at The Cottage, comes from one main root - the symbolic reasoning of the mind. Whether a design, animal, or a symbolic representation, it must invoke a positive response. One of his favorite things to hear is, "I have never received so many complements on my earrings." Ultimately he cares most about the customer being happy.
