Local jewelry designer Colby June Fulton is inspired by nature in her designs. So it makes sense that, in order to celebrate Earth Day, 20 percent of any in-person or online sales she makes from Saturday through Wednesday will be donated to Aspen-based Plant Trees 4 Life, a company dedicated to bettering the planet and local environment.

“We are very excited to partner with Plant Trees 4 Life,” said Fulton in a press release. “Earth Day is an especially great opportunity to support and shed light on companies that have a direct impact on the health and longevity of our planet.”

Fulton’s delicate designs are inspired by the tiny details in nature — many resemble pinecones, twigs, leaves, grass blades or water-polished stones.

Plant Trees 4 Life has already planted 500 trees in Independence Pass and other locations in the Roaring Fork Valley. Its goal is to plant 1 million trees in 10 years, and Fulton’s donation will play a part in bringing the company closer to that goal.

“It’s exhilarating and admirable to work with companies dedicated to the environment,” said Pamela Hart, founder and creative director of Plant Trees 4 Life. “We are looking forward to the impact we can make together.”

Fulton’s Colby June Jewelry studio is located at 1136 Colorado Ave. in Carbondale, and her work can be purchased online at For more information, visit
